According to reports, the park, known as The Restroom Cultural Park, has a museum which displays ancient Korean flush toilet, Roman-style loos, European-style bedpans and fun facts about human wastes and a garden of squatting sculptures.

The park is located in the city of Suwon, about an hour outside of the capital Seoul. It was built in memory of their late mayor, Sim Jae-duck who is also known as Mr. Toilet.

Reports said that Sim had obsession for toilets and spent his life promoting public toilets. He reportedly founded the World Toilet Association and wrote a book entitled “Happy To Be With You, Toilet.”

The world’s first toilet park has no entrance fee, and has already attracted 40,000 visitors since it opened in July, reports said.
