Military Barracks Transformed into Tourist Destinations


GOYANG, Sept. 23 (Korea Bizwire)Military facilities set up along the metal fence near the city of Goyang’s border with North Korea are turning into art platforms and wetland parks.

The city renovated four military barracks set up in the 18.2-kilometer zone between Daedeok Ecology Park and Ilsan Bridge into resting areas for local residents and tourist destinations, as part of the city’s plan to set up an ecology and history tourist zone in the area.

The Shinpyeong barracks were remodeled into an art platform where artists can join in a residency program to create and showcase various artworks concerning the local ecology and environment.


The Janghang barracks are being renovated into a Ramsar Goyang Janghang Wetland Center that includes an ecology education center and a 4D movie theater, aimed at completion by May 21 next year.

Walking decks and benches were also added last month to nine military outposts that connect the Haengju Fortress and the Janghang wetlands near the Hangang Peace Park.
