Again, the roof of Gwangju World Cup Stadium that the historical of semi-final has been cultivated in 2002 World Cup is seen if we walk here.
Especially, eyes and nose of passing people passing are captured as flower buds of various roses of each country are popped out in the early summer as the rose garden is created here.

The Field paththat the rice is rustled in both side street if we entered by walking straight along the lake.
It is the road presenting the unexpected landscape as the rice is dyed light green in the spring, dyed green color in the midsummer and dyed golden color in the autumn, is changed to the image like the snowy fields in the winter when the rice is cut off.
There is the low uphill road to the left side if we walk along the wide open field path, the entrance of Dongha village is reached if we face this place.
The Dongha village is the place that ‘the Seochang Mandeuri Harvesting Rituals’ has been performed as the neighboring village of Seochang Field.
It is the reason that wall paintings reproducing the Seochang Mandeuri Harvesting Rituals can be seen if we walk the village road.
The Mandeuri is the final weeding work of rice paddy as the work pulling out the weed until the rice is grown up to some extent after the rice transplantation.

Descendants of Chang Woo JANG repaired this place in 1945 by reconstructing in 1934.
The Seuphang Tower, theMookam Village School across the bridge are standing in a line beside Man-gwijeong in this pond.
The Man-gwijeong is the place where four seasons are beautiful.
The iris and the daffodil are dyed yellow in the spring, the Lycoris squamigera Maxim and the Lotus bloom in the summer and the cool feeling is given as the willow is dyed light green.
The classical grace and dignity is added in the autumn with the garden zinnia and the lotus, the different landscape is made as the white snow is coming down on the dark green pine tree in the winter.
This is the place making us think once again if there is the attraction with the dark season like this.
