Jeongalsan Park's basketball court sits behind the Goyang Aram Nuri Arts Center and at the foot of Jeongbal Mountain. It is a splendid basketball court hidden away from the chaos of the city. Although the basketball court is off the well-trodden path, it is a popular place for pick-up games. It is perhaps the best court in Ilsan to find regular pick-up games.
Jeongbalsan Park's basketball court, though a bit hidden, is not far from busy Jeongbalsan Station on line 3 in Ilsan. As such, it gets plenty of action. Especially on the weekends. It is a great place to find a game of pick-up ball. Just make sure you keep winning once you get on the court. If you lose, you may have to wait a while to get back on the court.
Bathrooms and water fountains are available near the court. That should make those needing a drink or a place to relieve themselves happy.
There are picnic tables in the nearby park. They are perfect for pre-, mid-, or postgame snacking. (although midgame snacking is not advised)

From Line 3 - Jeongbalsan Station (정발산역):
-Go out exit 3. Walk straight and you will fin yourself in front of the Goyang Aram Nuri Arts Center. Find your way to the rear of this complex. There is a park behind the buildings, and the basketball court is in this park.
