Sorae Ecological Park

Sorae Ecological Park was once Korea’s largest salt field. It was created during Japan colonial period and used until 1996. In May 2009, it was reopened as ecological park. This park has salt field, mud flat, and wetland as the bed of various living creatures and habitat for migratory birds. It enables observation of various marine creatures in marsh. It also has an exhibition hall that presents the information on the facility where salt was produced in the past.

See what I see? Windmills!

Sorae Ecological Park is famous for its windmill! There are exactly 3 windmills in the middle of the park. Seems so random, but it’s quite popular spot for taking photos. If you love taking picture, you’ll definitely love this!
