Tapgol Park, formerly Pagoda Park, is a small public park located at 97 Jongno, Seoul, South Korea. This park was once a site of Wongaksa. The word tap means "pagoda", and the park gets its name from the Wongaksa Pagoda, a 10 storied stone pagoda located in the park.
It was previously the site of a 15th-century Buddhist temple, and a 10 storied stone pagoda and a few relics of the temple still can be seen in the park. It was organized as a garden and national park by John McLeavy Brown, the Irish advisor to provincial subdivision in 1897.
