Gongsan-dong is an administrative dong in Dong-gu, in northeastern Daegu, South Korea. It has an area of 83.78 km², most of which is vacant; its population is only 18,177. Slightly more than half of the people live in the dong's 38 apartment blocks.[citation needed]

The dong was first constituted in 1981. For much of the 1980s and 1990s, it was divided into two administrative dong, but these were reunited into Gongsan-dong in 1998.

Gongsan Dam, which supplies drinking water for much of northern Daegu, is also located within the boundaries of Gongsan-dong. Land use in much of the dong is restricted due to regulations protecting the water supply and natural environment.

Legal dong[edit]

Because of the relatively low population density, Gongsan-dong encompasses a total of 14 legal dong. This is the reverse of the usual situation in urban areas, where legal dong are subdivided into numerous administrative dong.
