Busan sightseeing tours often include a stop at the park, along with other attractions such as Gamcheon Culture Village, Gukje Market, Jagalchi Fish Market, and Samkwang Temple.

Yi Sun-sin

While in the park, look for the giant statue of Yi Sun-sin, a 16th century Korean naval hero who won important victories against Japan during the Imjin War, despite his lack of naval training. He famously never lost a ship, and some historians nod to him as one of the great unsung naval commanders in world history.
