Barefoot Park To Open in NamsanThe 'Namsan Barefoot Park,' in which people will be able to tread the gravel paths barefoot, will open this August.
On May 28, the Seoul Municipal Government said that they would lay a mixture of gravel, amber, and marble on the planned promenade around Paekbum Square in Namsan Park.
"Walking barefoot reaps the same benefits as acupressure therapy, such as increasing circulation and improving the body's immune system," said one Seoul Government spokesperson.
The Boramae Barefoot Park and the Yongsan Park, both created in 1999, already attract 600 to 2,000 people per day, and have become Seoul's most popular places for rest and relaxation.
