  • Lowered nets which are great for growing bodies and grown individuals with average height.
  • Courts stay relatively busy and are close to a subway station.
  • There are benches around the court, so feel free to bring your entourage.
  • The basketball courts are close to the badminton courts and children's playground. It's a great set-up if you're coming with multiple kids.


  • If you don't like lowered nets, then this is not the place for you.
  • The goals do have some wear and tear. The rims are in pretty bad shape.
