Well, as the name suggest, it is a place for calming ones self. Garden of Morning Calm is the third and final leg of our Gapyeong City tour. It is a 30,000 square meter garden conceptualized by Professor Han Sang-kyung of the Gardening Department, Sahmyook University suitable for a family stroll, couples and photographers. A perfect place for peace and quiet.
Flowers bloom between March and November, so expect this place to be a bit busy during this duration. At the time we were there (April), I would think it was a bit early to witness them full blown flowers so the pictures in this post don’t do quite justice in representing the place’s status. The tulips however, were the star of our visit as they were the ones that struck our group most. In addition to the seemingly endless foliage of the garden, there are festivals and presentations held as well throughout the year.
* Spring: Spring Garden Festival
* Summer: Festival of Roses, Hydrangeas and Roses of Sharon
* Autumn: Festival of Chrysanthemums and Autumnal Tints
* Winter: Lighting Festival
If you are planning to try your hands on the Gapyeong City Tour, I would personally recommend to spend most of the time in Nami Island as well as the Garden of Morning Calm. You may still opt to visit Petite France but I do not suggest to stay there for too long. Once in the Garden of Morning Calm, the best route to roam the place is the alley coming from your left all the way as you go clockwise the vicinity. The place is huge to be honest and we didn’t have any chance to completely cover the entire park. Needless to say though that it was still pretty much cold for a spring when we visited the place. We needed warmth badly I tell you. Also, we need to be sure we’ll catch the last bus which departs at 7pm en route to the Cheongpyeong Station and take the train back to the city.
