This park occupies the former site of a water treatment plant.  The unsightly sewage facility was shuttered in 1998 and Seonyudo Park was opened to the public in 2002.  The ecological park has won wide acclaim for the creative ways in which the remaining concrete structures have been transformed and given new roles, e.g., concrete basins now hold aquatic plants etc.

If you’re planning a trip, these sites have more information and pictures:
