With more people visiting the Han River Parks, they have turned into garbage-filled parks where people can no longer enjoy their beauty. According to the city of Seoul, the amount of garbage alongside the Han River has increased by more than 12 percent within the past two years. To promote a more pleasant environment in the Han River Parks, the city of Seoul is allowing visitors to use tents only from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 13 designated tent zones. Those who violate this regulation will have to pay a penalty of up to W1 million. Furthermore, those who want to hold events at the Han River Parks have to submit cleaning plans.
