The Halla Arboretum opened in 1993 as a provincial arboretum for using and studying Jeju native plants.
It is located at the foot of Gwang-i Oreum and Namjosun Oreum, near the 1100 Road in Jeju City. 1,100 species of plants and about 100,000 individual plants grow in this garden which has a total area of 20 hectares, subdivided into 10 botanical gardens. Among these are an educational forest garden with evergreen broad-leaved trees, a four-season flower garden, an out-of-the-way speciality plant garden, and a medicinal and edible plant garden. It also includes a forest area and a physical work out field.
The arboretum is filled with plants having such interesting names as shrimp orchid, foot-of-deer, young deer’s ear, and so on. This place is different from other city parks that visitors can see and feel the trees while learning to appreciate nature.
