Nice stroll along boardwalk, but be warned some of the paths are like going on a serious hike. Take water and rest regularly

Nice walk along the Boardwalk and then up through the tress. Interesting sight with good photo opportunities. Walk back to Okpo along the main roads followed by a relaxing drink to cool down

The views are beautiful and the park has some interesting monuments and is a walk from the centre of Okpo, mind you the walk is very steep.

Only few western people know enough korean history and it becomes even more true when visiting this monument. This place pays tribute to an old Korean Naval Hero Yi Sun-shin who with his men thought against tyranni and potential Japanese occupation.
