Balbadak Park [발바닥공원 or 발바닥공원입구] is a neighborhood park along side a dry river valley with a length of about 1.2km. Before it was established in 1998, a shanty town was situated here from the mid-1960s. The park comes with an ecological pond, an acupressure sidewalk and a nature study area among others. The bridge seen in Her Private Life is located close to the Western entry point of the park.

The park is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Banghak [Banghak-dong/방학동] in the Dobong District [Dobong-gu/도봉구]. Dobong Top Judo [도봉탑유도관], also seen in Her Private Life is located not too far from here.
