Underneath Naebu Expressway lies the ‘Rucker Park’ of Korea. A truly urban basketball court. Surrounded by a green fence, dimly lit, the Hongje Basketball Courts seem like they’ve been taken right out of NBA Jam or Hangtime.
One word: Ball! That's all you need to know.
Similar to Myeongji University’s courts. It is a soft top. Kind of like the artificial turf they use for football fields. Its not too bad on the knees and the grip is adequate.
BALLIN'! Need more be said?
To see more photos of The Court in Hongje, check out The Seoul Stop's photo album.
Where: Gyeonggi-do, Anyang-si, Dongan-gu, Pyeongchon-dong
From Line 3 - Hongje Station (홍제역):
-Take Bus 110A, 110B, 153, 7018, or 7730 to Seoul Women's College of Nursing (Bus Stop ID 13-169 and 13-168). From the bus stop, walk towards the S-Oil gas station. The ramp leading to the court is on the opposite side of the street from the gas station. You will see banners in Korean that have basketball pictures. Follow the signs.
