Mangwon Hangang Park sits on the northern banks of the Han River close to the western end of Seoul. Its sports facilities are a bit dated and not in the best condition. However, it is a scenic park, and playing at Mangwon Hangang Park is always rewarding because of the views.
There are 2 full-sized basketball courts in Mangwon Han River Park. Because of their location right next to the Han River, they offer a very scenic and unique place to play basketball. The surface isn't ideal, but who cares? (probably a lot of people)
The surface here is a bit different than typically found. The court's surface consists of several plastic tiles fitted together. It is almost like a mat. It has okay grip, but it does a rough number on the basketball. Don't bring a ball you're fond of. Any ball that goes through a basketball game here will look like it has been through a war zone.
