Seoullo 7017 Skygarden [서울로7017 or 서울역고가공원] is a public park located on a converted elevated highway (similar to New York City’s High Line Park) just north of Seoul Station [서울역] in Seoul’s neighborhood Hoehyeon [Hoehyeon-dong/회현동]. The name ‘Seoullo’ means ‘towards Seoul’ and ‘Seoul Street’, and 7017 is a combination of the year of the construction of the highway (1970) and its transformation into a park (2017).
This walkway officially opened on May 20, 2017 and has since then been featured on many design/architecture websites.
In 2019, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism –announced through the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)– selected Seoullo 7017 as one of the ‘100 Must-Visit Spots in Korea’ for 2019-2020.
