Dosan Park is a park in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

Construction began in 1971 and opened in 1973. The park was named after Ahn Chang-ho's penchant for patriotism and education.

It is the place where Dosan Ahn Chang-ho and his wife Lee Hye-ryeon were buried together. There is a statue of Ahn Chang-ho on the east side of the park, and a walkway stretches around the center, which is round like a Western-style garden.

The Dosan Ahn Chang-ho Memorial Hall in Dosan Park displays photos, letters, temporary government feedbooks and Dosan diaries that give you a quick look at Dosan's life and thoughts.

It is also equipped with a touch screen where you can see Dosan's notes, annals, and pictures.

Ahn Chang-ho (November 9, 1878-March 10, 1938) was an educational reform activist and patriotic enlightenment activist in the Korean Empire, and an independence activist, educator, and politician during the Japanese occupation.
