Splash Park at Pyeongtaek City Hall

After reading a few suggestions from friends, including a post by South of Soul, the boys and I went to the water park on a whim after a local dentist appointment. We arrived at 3 in the afternoon during the busiest summer holiday week for Koreans. It was packed! I’ve seen photos of overcrowded water parks so it wasn’t that bad, but it was close. I would suggest waiting until the crowds die down after the holidays end on August 8th.Splash Park Splash Pad Pop Up Pool Pyeongtaek City Hall

 

I still can’t figure out why Korean water parks require everyone to wear hats. I tried asking a lady there and I couldn’t understand her answer other than that it’s just the way it is. Because I didn’t believe anyone when they posted about hats at pools, we had to buy little black diving hats for the boys. This is not a shining moment for them.Splash Park Splash Pad Pop Up Pool Pyeongtaek City Hall
