It was established for the rowing and canoeing competition during the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Olympics.[1][2] The place has a 4.4 million square meters in total, the lake area of which covers 2,212 m in length, 140m in width and depth 3m. The area was originally a small island surrounded by sand which made its scenery as beautiful as if it were waving, so was named "Misa-ri" (sand waving) in Korean.[3]
