The Seoul Grand Park is surrounded by the Cheonggyesan area (Makgye-dong,
Gwacheon-si) where approximately 10 families were forced to leave the grounds
in 1984 due to park construction. Following the eventual restoration, the
environment is very well preserved for an incomparable environment that
cannot be found within the greater area of Seoul.

Forests are made up of healing factors such as landscape, phytoncide, negative ions, oxygen, sound, and sunlight.
The green that makes up the forest relieves eye strain and brings peace of mind. The seasonal sense of the forest that changes with time is another attraction that naturally focuses human attention on it and relieves fatigue.
Phytoncide is a substance produced by trees to protect itself from pests and wounds. Phytoncide is a compound of plant' 'phyton' and killer's 'Cide' to relieve inflammation, and volatile phytoncide which is present in the forest air stimulates the sense of smell of the body to bring stability and comfort.
The negative ion that neutralizes the human body, which is prone to acidification in daily lives, are present in large amounts in the pleasant natural environment such as the respiration of forests, the transpiration of soil in the forest, and around valleys or waterfalls.
The sound generated in the forest has the characteristics of a relatively wide pitch white sound that makes humans comfortable and improves concentration. The sound of the forest has different characteristics for each season, and the sound of the forest in spring is the most stable sound.
In forests, the effect of blocking ultraviolet rays which are harmful to skin cancer, cataracts, and immunology are better than in cities, making outdoor activities possible for a long time. Sunlight is widely used as a method of preventing or treating depression by promoting serotonin secretion and is essential for the synthesis of vitamin D, which strengthens bones and helps the differentiation of cells.
