[아시아경제 영남취재본부 이상현 기자] Gimhae City in Gyeongnam announced on the 15th that it will build a park around the Ipop Tree in Sincheon-ri, Hallim-myeon, Natural Monument No. 185.

The city plans to build a 936 square meter park around the Ipop trees by the end of this year, spending 280 million won to protect natural monuments and increase access to citizens.

Since the Shincheon-ri Ipop Tree is located in the central residential area of ​​the village, it was difficult to manage, so last year, nearby houses were compensated and protected areas were expanded.

This year, according to the maintenance plan, facilities in the expanded designated protected areas will be demolished and a park composed of convenience facilities and festival spaces will be created so that citizens can use them as cultural spaces.

An official from Gimhae City said, “We will promote synergy effects by simultaneously promoting the Sincheonri Ipop Tree and surrounding cultural assets in connection with nearby cultural facilities such as Hwapocheon Wetland Ecological Park.”
