This was the first park in Korea. It was also the original place of the first Korean Independence Movement Day gathering on March 1, 1919 and the venue of the reading of the Korean Declaration of Independence. There are several national assets in the park, including Wongaksaji, a 10-story tower, the Wongaksa Monument, Palgakjung and the Declaration of Independence Monument. In recent times, the park has become a meeting place for many of Seoul's senior citizens.
