Pyeonghwa Nuri Park, Paju, Gyeonggi Province: Hoping for the better Korean Reunification


Pyeonghwa Nuri Park (Hanja: 平和누리公園) is a peace theme park famous for "Windy Hill", where thousands of colorful pinwheels spin. Located at Majeong-ri 618-13 beonji, Munsan-eup, Paju City, Gyeonggi Province, this park is part of Imjingak Area. The park is also loved by photographers as it has beautiful small and large ponds, interesting installation artworks under the theme of peace, cafés and candle shops. 

The park was built in 2005 for the Global Peace Festival and is home to several pieces of installation art, none more impressive than Choi Pyung-gon’s “Calling Unification,” a series of giant bamboo men walking up a hill towards North Korea.

"Music Hill", an outdoor stage with a capacity for 25,000 people, holds events and performances in the hope of reunification and peace on the Korean peninsula. The Unicef Children’s Hall, a space for donation and charity run by Unicef, is designed to support and improve the living and welfare of children in underdeveloped countries like North Korea.

A popular spot for photos is Pinwheel Hill, a hill covered in hundreds of multicolored pinwheels. Thanks to the wind this spot gets, you'll find many families flying kites, too—kites can be purchased onsite. The architecturally pleasing Annyeong Café of Pyeonghwa Nuri Park has snacks and coffee, but its views are even better.
