Toilet Park

This post is contributed by Rahul Iyer. Another SISO employee. Many thanks to him. "Mr. Toilet House" is a toilet shaped house build by Ex-Mayor of Suwon Mr. Sim Jae-duck. After his demise, his family has donated this house and a park has been built around this house. This park is the only and first toilet park in the world. Mr. Sim Jae-duck was born in a toilet at its maternal place. He went on to become mayor of Suwon city. His vision was to make toilet across Suwon to world class. So, he constructed beautiful toilets across Suwon. He became first president of Korea Toilet association. He even nick-named himself as Mr.Toilet. Mr.Sim Jae-duck or Mr.Toilet destroyed his house where he lived for 30 years and build a house that looked like a toilet to celebrate the birth of the World Toilet Association. This house is very near from Suwon city. By sub-way have to take Line-1 from Suwon city and get down at Sunggyungwan Station. From Sunggyungwan Station it just costs 3000 Wons by taxi. Or can take bus number 64 and get down in Dongwon High school stop. It is just 5 min walk from Dongwon High school stop.
