A Walk in the Park: Former U.S. Army Base in South Korea Gets "Green" Makeover.

Camp Hialeah, a strategic army base during the Korean war was officially turned over to Busan City in 2006 and recently opened to the public as Busan Citizens Park.

It includes miles of walking paths, bridges, wooded areas, a performance center and several childen's play areas.

Blending the old with the new, the officer's quarters is now a museum retelling the history of the base and the sergeant's housing was converted into an art village.

The park is conveniently located within a short walking distance of metro Bujeon Station 20, Line 1.
