Marronnier Park is a park in the Daehangno district of Seoul
. At the center of the park is a horse chestnut (marronnier) tree, of the genus Aesculus, for which the park takes its name. The Marronnier originates from the Mediterranean Sea and is quite common in France
where they grow at roadside. From May to June, red or white flowers bloom.
The park opened for Seoulites to enjoy artistic culture. It is located in the former location of Seoul National University
. The park is named after the Marronnier growing there.
Though the park is not very large it forms the center of one of Seoul's major theater districts, Daehangno, and is a popular gathering spot for the city's university students.Hyehwa-dong , Jongno
