From Highway to Park

Seoullo 7017

서울로 7017

Seoul is continuously adding to its urban pedestrian-friendly landscape, and Seoullo 7017 is one of its newest developments. Opened to the public in May 2017, this unused highway overpass built in 1970 has been converted into an elevated walkway connected to 17 pedestrian roads (thus the name, 7017, with Seoul-lo meaning Seoul road). Similar to the concept of Manhattan’s High Line, a public park built on a rail line raised above the city streets, Seoullo 7017 provides visitors with a refuge from the commotion of the city, all while viewing the bustling cityscape from the serene setting above. Over 20,000 trees and flowers have been planted and as they grow and matures, so too will Seoullo 7017's lure as a natural escape within the city. For now, this walkway is a nice stroll to get views of the city and its some of its historical landmarks, such as Culture Station Seoul 284, Namsan Tower, Sungnyemun Gate, and the Seoul City Wall.
