Hallim Park was established in 1971 on barren
land in Hyeopjaeri which was covered with
tons of earth and planted with assorted subtropical
plants. The plants are divided into 16 sectors
including the Tropical Botanical Garden,
Washingtonia Palm Garden, Foliage Plant Garden,
Palm Tree Garden, Kiwi Fruit Garden Bonsai
Garden and Water Gardens.
Hyeopjae and Ssangyong Caves are two of several
caves located in Hallim Park. Unlike most
lava tubes, these caves contain a number
of stalagtites and stalagmites. Ssangyong
Cave is the only two-dimensional cave in
the world (a cave that has another cave inside).
Ssangyong means "double dragon."
Animal life in the park includes Lizards,
snakes and many birds including rare albino
The Bonsai Gardens, Azalea Gardens and Water
