Gwangokji cherishes a legend that Hi-maeng Kang, a noted official and scholar suring the early Chosun dynasty, started cultivating lotus by bringing in lotus flower seeds from Nanjing, China he visited in 1463 (9th year of King Sejo reign) by envoy.
To cherish the symbolic and historic value of Gwangokji, Siheung City built the Lotus Theme Park on a 10 ha wide land. Promenades and bike routes have been built along the perimeter making access easy for people. Lotus flowers start blooming in mid July and reach full blossom in mid to late August, but they are enjoyed till mid to late September.
