Dongbaek Lake Park [동백호수공원/東栢湖水公園] is an artificial lake park with an ecological concept that was created as part of the area’s development, completed in 2006. It is located in Yongin’s neighborhood Dongbaek [Dongbaek-dong/동백동] in the Giheung District [Giheung-gu/기흥구]; a 3-min. drive or approx. 20-min. walk to/from Dongbaek (Camellia) Apelbaum [동백아펠바움] and a 11-min. walk to/from Cat Kitchen – Dongbaek Branch [고양이부엌 동백점].

The 17,000-pyeong (over 56,000㎡) park consists of facilities such as an observation deck, rest area, musical fountain, octagonal pavilions, and an outdoor stage. Part of the park is also lined with metasequoia trees. Its most prominent art sculpture, Sanwoolim (산울림) (2006) by artist Park Man-cheol (박만철), “symbolizes and expresses the beautiful scenery of the Dongbaek district”, in hopes that it will “become a living space where people can live a prosperous life, and that a beautiful culture will spring forth”.

The 370㎡ rest area seen in Yumi’s Cellscreated by the Yongin City Council in August 2019 — is located next to the park’s central stage, and faces Bluquay Laboum Outlets [블루키라붐아울렛 동백점].
