Dorim-dong Sports Park
Basketball

The Korean name for the Dorim-dong Sports Park literally means 'athletic facilities in a lagoon'. Interesting, huh? Wow your friends with that tidbit of knowledge after sinking the game-winning shot on the basketball court.


The Scouting Report

Dorim-dong Sports Park is a spacious park with a few athletic facilities. The basketball court is full-court but slightly smaller than regulation size. It would be more suited for 4-on-4 games than the traditional 5-on-5.

Surface

Green, hard top. As the old saying goes:

Korean music has no other than K-Pop,
Korean basketball has no other than Green Top.

The surface is a little slick. It is somewhat like a Korean style bathroom floor. It should be treated with caution and respect.

Pros

  • If you are looking for a basketball court to have a game among friends with few distractions, this is your place. It is not a popular place for impromptu pick-up games.
  • If you are looking for a basketball court to have a shoot-around session with few distractions, this is your place. It is not a popular place for impromptu pick-up games.

Cons

  • The rims are not 10 foot tall. They are about a foot lower.
  • If you are looking for a lively spot with pick-up games, this is not it. Pick up your stuff and go elsewhere.
  • These courts are not close to a subway station.

Extra Info

The location is quite unique. The sports park sits in a depression in the ground (hence the name - 'lagoon').

There are water fountains and bathrooms nearby. Use your eyes and you should be able to locate both.
