Suyeong-gu is committed to the success, promotion, and developing of respect to the 25 people who saearified their lives to protect the nation during the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592, as well as Suyeong traditional folk arts and cultural assets. In addition, as a preparation for the 2002 Asian Games and the 2002 World Cup games, Suyeong-gu put its greatest effort intoinviting tourists from all over the world to the park by investing 9.5 billion won into it when a plan was established for it in 1995.

The Park includes the Suyeong folk art center, access roads, 25 man volunteer army shrine, a (25 man volunteer army) purification campaign for gen. An,Yong-bok pagoda, Suyeong historical relic center, and more. We are also planning to further carry out plans by investing 18.4 billion won on maintenance and restoration of the sacred ground of Jwasuyoung, including restoration of the four main gates, castle reconstruction,etc.

Once the maintenance plan is completed, Suyeong Park will become a great place to experience history as well as enjoy a traditional folk performance.
