Located around San 42-2, Gil-dong across from Ecological Park, the Iljasan Astronomy and Herb Park consists of an herb garden, a medicinal herb garden, and a rock garden. Functioning as a border between Gangdong-gu of Seoul and Hanam-si of Gyeonggi-do, Iljasan is a hill where the beautiful nature is well-preserved. The park was developed on the hilltop, which has the best view and rich soil for plant growing by planting 41,586 specimens of 167 plant species. Forming a green zone with the Gil-dong Ecological Park and Iljasan Nature Park, Iljasan Astronomy and Herb Park is very much loved by local residents and as a popular tourist site.

Yongma Waterfall Park, which is located halfway up the Yongmasan, the highest peak of Mt. Acha, consists of three artificial waterfalls and a pond. Auxiliary facilities include four swimming pools, a football field, a badminton court, a tennis court, and a gate ball court. Amenities such as lookout shed and tables are installed across the park. The park also features Suiseki Garden and Sky Park as well as an observation deck and an outdoor concert hall.

Yongma Waterfall, which has height of 51m, is the tallest artificial waterfall in Asia. Cheongnyong Falls and Baengma Falls, which are over 20m high, are located on the sides of Yongma Waterfall. The central lawn is used as an outdoor wedding venue. In winter time, the falls freeze and provide a space for enjoying ice climbing. The pond is also used as a skating rink.
