Long Description:

상주 북천시민공원
Bukcheon Citizen's Park - Sangju, Korea

This park in the city of Sangju, Korea, sits on both sides of the Nakdong River, near the site of a historic battle with the Japanese in the 16th century. The park features themes around the city's well-known bicycle festival.

The Nakdong River has been significantly historical throughout Korea's history, and Sangju is centrally located in the valley, being a gateway route to the Han River Valley to the north and the capital city of Seoul.

Sangju has claimed fame as the bicycle capital of Korea and there are several notable sculptures in the park commemorating that fact, and the annual bicycle festival. There are walking trails along the river, and on the north side is a large amphitheater.
