A Visit with Dinosaurs and a Day Picnic at Gosangol Park with Min Hee

A visit with Dinosaurs and 
a day picnic at Gosangol(고산골)Park

Recently on a cool winter day Min Hee asked if we could go see the dinosaurs again.  
Yep,  we packed up the gear and some lunch and snacks and headed to Gosangol Park.  
Even though it was not a sunny day there were quite a few families near the dinosaurs.

There are four different dinosaurs at the park and a couple of babies as well. 
They roar and move around a bit. 
They are only replicas, but Min Hee said she can feel how big they were long ago.

“They are big, daddy, but not scary”
“What about the big one with teeth?”
“That’s the mommy.  She is watching her babies.”

At the baby dinosaur eggs children can pose in the eggs with the babies.  
These are quite popular with small children because the egg shell goes down and then pops open with a baby Dino looking out at you.

“Daddy, there are many leaves. They look like a blanket on the ground.”
“Yeah, maybe we can clean up the park a little before lunch?”
“Good idea!”

We always take more trash out of the parks than we bring in 
and Min Hee sometimes has to be told not to pick stuff up because it is broken glass or dirty tissues.  
Her dad calls her “the good little helper girl”.

After a lunch of kimbap and hot chocolate, Min Hee and her mom cuddled up in the tent.  
This day, they didn’t take a nap, but just played around like two friends and had fun trying to stay warm.  
Passersby would often stop to see who was doing the giggling. 

The activity course is still being worked on and when it is finished, 
Min Hee and her family will visit again and do an article on all of the different hands-on activities.  

But, for now the cable bridge is open and Min Hee can cross it, on her own, even at dusk.  
Today she went back and forth three times.

We hope to see you out and about in our Colorful Daegu and if you happen to see us, please say Hi!

  1. Nice job Min Hee. The dinosaurs are amazing, aren't they? I can't even imagine running in to one of them on the way to the mall!
    I can't wait to see where your next adventure will be Min Hee. 😍
