Lake and Reservoir Series (Part 2) : Unamji

It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city by finding respite in a nearby park. If you happen to be in Chilgok, then this second feature in our four part series on Daegu’s lakes and reservoirs is a must see. Unamji Park is nestled in between the mountains that form the eastern border of Chilgok.

Cool off by the water fountain during the summer heat.
Walk around the pond or hike up into Hamji mountain for amazing vistas of the mountain ridge and panoramic views of Chilgok.
Have a picnic in the pagoda and catch a soft breeze coming off of the pond.
Or even better, kick off your shoes and cool off in the stream.
Enjoy some outdoor tunes while watching the sunset.
There is an entrance to…
An open space and a playground to have fun!

Cafes and Restaurants: The street leading up to the pond is filled with restaurants. Many of them specializing in pork and rice soup (돼지국밥).
How to get there: Take the skytrain to Chilgok Unam Station. The lake is across from Unam Middle School. The walk from the station takes about 15-20 minutes, or a 5 minute taxi ride.
