Nowon-gu is a residential district of Seoul, South Korea, Located in the northeastern part of the metropolitan city. Nowon-gu (and Seoul) is bordered by the mountains Suraksan and Bukhansan, on the northeast. These scenic mountains are popular among hikers and offer a welcome respite from the concrete jungle. The Jungnangcheon (or Jungnang Stream) flows through the western part of Nowon. The riverside is surfaced on both sides to provide an optimum facility for exercise such as running, skating and bicycle riding. There are numerous playground facilities for children, nested between the highrise apartment buildings. Nowon has excellent shopping and recreational facilities all built around the Nowon Subway Station. It's a lively, clean and safe town with excellent transport links, which makes it the ideal choice for young families.

The Gyeongchun and Gyeongwon Lines of Korean National Railroad and the Seoul Metropolitan Subway lines four, six, and seven pass through Nowon-gu.

Nowon-gu is home to numerous educational institutes such as the Korea Military Academy, Sejong Science High School, Seoul National University of Technology, and Seoul Women's University. The large number of schools, universities, and hagwon have given the "gu" the reputation of being the so-called "educational district" of northern Seoul, just like Gangnam-gu and Seocho-gu of southern Seoul.
