Flood waters recede during a lull in rain, leaving behind mud and rows of ravaged trees at Gwangnaru Hangang Park in Seoul.
Jamwon Hangang Park in southern Seoul has reopened to the public after being closed for nearly a week due to heavy rain and flooding.
Ten other parks located along the banks of the Han River, including those in the Jamsil, Mangwon and Yeouido areas, remain closed to both pedestrians, bikers and vehicles.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government restricted access to all 11 parks on August 6 due to dangers posed by rising water levels.
City officials say the parks will gradually reopen once recovery and cleanup work is completed.
