Hyochang Park
Basketball

Are you a teenager or child who is tired of shooting airballs? Are you a non-NBA-sized player who wishes you could dunk? Well, Hyochang Park has you covered. It has 1.5 courts with 3 lower-than-regulation nets. Slam Dunks in Seoul!


The Scouting Report

Close to Seoul Station? Got a basketball in hand? Want to play a game? Then head to Hyochang Park.

Surface

Standard green top. Good balance equals good grip.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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.
