Cheongna Canal Park Incheon from high

Stretching across the whole and through the heart of the new International City of Cheongna, Incheon is the Cheongna Canal Way and Canal Park (청라 커넬웨이 / 공원). The project was completed last year at a cost of around 75.9 billion won ($6.9million). This landmark features a number of interesting sights, stores as a well a nice flat walking and cycling areas.

During the summer the highlight activity is canoeing, they can be rented from around April until October and are popular mainly with parents looking for something for their kids to do. There are also public use gym equipment, benches, tables and pagodas to enjoy and relax on/in all year round. Certain parts of the canal feature fountain water displays (only during the spring/summer months), and at night there are many parts illuminated by peaceful neon lights. During the winter months the canal freezes over and some people walk on it (although this is not advisable). The pathways are wide, and the canal way / parks are generally pretty quiet. If you continue walking west towards the sea you’ll find the Cheongna Central Park, which has even more things to do (more information coming soon).

Overall the Cheongna Canal Way and Canal Park make for an enjoyable visit any time of year and can be an escape from the pressures of work etc. Pictures, Directions and Maps below.

Links for and Directions to Cheongna Canal Way and Canal Park, Incheon

If Driving; Cheongna is easily accessible by car with a new bypass completed connecting it to the Gyeongin Expressway in 2014. There are a few limited free street parking places available at different points of the canal way, however the central area is generally very busy from 11am until the early hours.
If using Public Transport; The closest subway station in Cheongna International Station (Airport Line) however that’s still a bus ride away. The 904 (starting from Bupyeong Station) or the 2-1 (from Jakjeon Station) are two of the better Bus options. If traveling from the Geoman Station area then either the 42-1 or 17-1 are pretty direct.
