There are several attached facilities in this arboretum. The parking lot around the entrance, the benches along the strolling alleys and makeshift performance stages, as well as the ecological restrooms scattered over the place made of Corten steel, wood or concrete.

Besides, two large water tanks supplying water to the entire site were asked to install in two places. One was built in the ground, and its upper surface was made to serve as a viewing platform to take a view of the quince orchard. The other was built on the hill top, and it may be used as another viewing pavilion to look over the east. This concrete structure has a staircase that rises up along the wall, and the structure was divided into several segments that look like a small fort. It also serves as an observatory to look at the stars engraved on the sky chart. This is why the name of this structure is called Cheomdan or astronomical observatory. The vicinity of this area forms a special landscape, matching the small doors of the astronomical observatory made of stone with the far-reaching meadow.
