A Walk Around Suseong Lake in Daegu, South Korea

Spring is a beautiful time in South Korea. The weather turns and so do the flowers. Each year when the cherry blossoms come out might be the prettiest time of year on the peninsula. So last weekend, a friend and I took a walk down to Suseong Lake which is nearby.

The lake area is very popular in Daegu. Families, couples, and just about everyone else come out to enjoy the nice weather and the great atmosphere. There is a walking track around the lake, duck boats to take a ride on the lake, a park next to the lake where there are basketball courts, tennis courts, and grassy areas where families can come and enjoy a picnic.

As we strolled around the lake, the blossoms were falling from the trees giving the area a winter like feel as if snow was softly falling on your face. We noticed old and young out enjoying the weather, and a lot of cotton candy.

Some were just sitting enjoying a picnic in the park. Others were out with friend socializing, while some were just strolling around taking in the beautiful views in the middle of the city.

One interesting person I came across was break dancing. He had music going and had claimed a small area near the walking track to perform his new moves. As people moved by they would stop for a minute or two to check out the entertainment. In addition there were fathers and sons playing catch, boys playing basketball, and even a kite or two being flown.

Here are a few pictures from my walk to the lake. It’s a beautiful spot in a city that can seem bland and all too ordinary at times.

Enjoy…

    Hi, I enjoyed your writing about Suseong Lake. I was just in the area Thursday for my school’s dinner. I’m a new English teacher living in the Bukyeon Junction/Young Jin College area – between red line stations Keungogae and Ayanggyo. Are you familiar wit that area?

    I’d like to visit Suseong Lake once it warms up. Do you know the best route – subway line, bus or taxi – of how to get there? I’m still figuring out the public transportation system. Thanks!
