Do you like to learn about Korean history and play badminton? Are you coming with a group of twelve people and need 6 courts? As usual, Hyochang Park has you covered.

The Scouting Report

Hyochang Park offers six badminton courts in the badminton section of the park. If you're hosting a badminton tournament in Seoul, this is the place for you.


Dirt. It is not too slippery. There is no need to bring spikes or cleats.


  • There are not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, but SIX courts! #LebronJames
  • There are benches around the courts.


  • The nets take the winter months off. Don't expect to see any nets hanging around.
  • The courts have seen better days. They have suffered some wear and tear.
