Grace Garden and the Hydrangeas

Address: 1312-71, Samsang-ro, Sangni-myeon, Goseong-gun

Grace Garden just opened in 2020. This is a great place for a leisurely stroll among different colors and varieties of hydrangea flowers.

We quickly came upon multiple colors of hydrangeas right after parking.

Last we knew, the admission rates were:

  • Adults: ₩5,000
  • Students and seniors: ₩4,000
  • Children: ₩3,000

After parking and walking up the concrete incline, there is a small café at the junction of a few paths. We started down the alley of circular stepping stones with tall trees on both sides, interspersed with hydrangeas.

We didn’t notice any particular route to follow, so we just explored at will.

Eventually we found ourselves at a church in the middle of the garden, which we believe helped to make this garden available to visitors.

Later we also came across a stone stairway which seemed like a nice photo opportunity.

It’s interesting to see the different shapes and colors of the hydrangea flowers.

If you visit in the summer, you’ll likely enjoy the fact that this place is a bit elevated in higher terrain and well-shaded.

As an insect enthusiast, I saw a few specimens that intrigued me, much more than my wife. I do enjoy this aspect of a rather rural location.

The above photos were taken in July of 2020. I returned here in September 2021, after the flowers had all bloomed.

There are many paths along the mountain. I followed some of them and got quite the workout. My legs were burning walking up and down continuously.

In 2021, I found the little wooden house kind of thing below. It was empty inside.

I found another new little building packed full of books.

This was next to a garden promenade with a small fountain.

There was also another café area with a bunch of seating outside. It was playing Christian worship music.

The building back at the entrance to Grace Garden has a spiral staircase with a photo gallery inside and a deck outside.

It was a nice visit even in September, though it’s definitely better to come during blooming season to see all the beautiful colors of flowers.

Sangri Lotus Park is only 5 minutes away from Grace Garden. It has giant lily pads, and during the blooming season, many colors of lilies and lotus flowers.

Have you been here? Have you noticed newer paths or garden areas (we noticed ongoing construction when we visited)? I hope you enjoy should you decide to visit!
