Snoopy Garden is a peaceful retreat where you can channel your inner Snoopy and live as he would, relaxing with loved ones and appreciating the simple things in life.
The indoor Garden House has five themed halls focusing on the different aspects of the Peanuts life: Relationship, Daily Life, Relaxation, Happiness and Dream.
The indoor halls offer plenty of photo opportunities like a Snoopy classroom setting and Lucy's iconic psychiatry booth.
The Outdoor Garden is an outdoor exhibit consisting of 11 themed gardens decorated with Peanuts characters. You can pose alongside them and feel like you're one of the characters in the comic!
World Famous Author Square
This little hill has three Peanuts characters lying on the grass and looking at the sky. Notice how they're strategically arranged such that there's space for you and your travel buddies to lie next to them.
Snoopy Persona Rock Garden
In this gorgeous tranquil forest, you can spot Snoopy characters between rocks, moss and grass. Rather than looking tacky, they somehow complement Jeju's natural beauty.
Woodstock's Big Nest
This wooden "nest" is located 5 metres from the ground. You'll get a nice breath of fresh air and wonderful view of the garden while walking through the elevated walkway.
Peanuts Musing Field
You might recognise these low brick walls as they are the Peanuts characters' go-to hangout spot. Lean against the wall with a musing pose for a winning shot.
Warm Puppy Lake
This is where you'll find Snoopy sitting at the end of the pier waiting for you to join him.
Beagle Scout Camp
This area has a small but impressive waterfall with Snoopy and the little Woodstock birds walking across the water on tree logs. A popular photo pose is standing on one of the logs to look like you're following them at the end of the line.
Prepare some good walking shoes because there are still five other Spoopy-fied areas to explore in the Outdoor Garden including a hydrangea-filled garden, a pumpkin patch and a baseball park.
Once you're all tired out, you can take a break and have a bite at the minimalist Snoopy cafe that has floor-to-ceiling windows to show off the view of the garden. The cafe serves American home-style brunch items like burgers and fries with a cute Snoopy-themed presentation.
There's also a Peanuts Store stocked with cute Snoopy merchandise!
