First Garden (as seen on: Go Back Couple (2017); While You Were Sleeping (2017); Manhole (2017)) is a large-scale multi-cultural facility of 16,000 square meters opened to the public in April 2017. The theme park is an hour and half away from the bustling life in Seoul.
The Greco-Korean fused theme park has a variety of facilities including the Adonis Garden with 23 themes, restaurants, wedding halls, amusement facilities, experiential learning, gift shops, four seasons sledges, and challenging courses.
Here, art events are presented with various concepts. A new theme is selected every month according to the four beautiful seasons – spring, summer, fall, and winter. The gardens are called “Flower Garden,” “Water Garden,” “Festival Garden,” and “Light Garden” each season, showcasing events and cultural art. The First Garden is composed of various theme gardens, making you feel the exotic atmosphere of Greek mythology. Especially, you can find Toscana Square, Rose Garden with the love story of cupid and psyche, and Byeokcheon Fountain that looks like Zeus pouring water.
Additionally, there are rides, four-season sledding slope, challenge course, herb garden, greenhouse where you can enjoy a four-season atmosphere, and Bird Plaza to experience birds.
