Daegu Arboretum

  • Daegu Arboretum (title image)
Intro :
This municipal arboretum is recognized as a good model for restoring a seriously damaged ecosystem. This site was as a sanitary landfill from 1986 through 1990. In efforts to restore this area, the city government constructed botanical gardens that include more than 1,000 species of unique plants. Visitors to the arboretum can enjoy its gardens, which contain giant cactuses, medicinal herbs, wild flowers, and potted plants. Ponds with aquatic lives and groves with various kinds of trees are another attraction. In addition, the arboretum offers several trail routes and has large grassed areas, which are great advantages for having a picnic or just relaxing, as well as exploring plants.
