Gangnam seems to have it all: money, glitz, style, etc. It even has great balling locations. One such court is in the small, unassuming Maroo Park. The park specializes in sports and indeed serves up a good offering of basketball. There are two full courts side by side which can support plenty of players. If you are looking for a place to play basketball in Gangnam, definitely consider Maroo Park.
Play basketball. At Maroo Park. Because if you don't. You won't. So play. Today.
Wet. It stays wet when it rains. This is to be expected though. On dry days, the courts stay dry.
The courts are typical outdoor asphalt courts. They normal boundary lines are marked well: sideline, baseline, key, 3-point arc, etc.
Drink the water from the nearby water fountain or bring your own drinks. There's not much to be had here.
Check out the Maroo Park photo album to see more pictures of the area.
Where: Seoul-si, Gangnam-gu, Ilweon-2-dong
From Line 3 - Daecheong Station (대청역):
-Leave through exit 2. Turn left and walk for 200 meters. Look for a small path that leads into the park on your left. As soon as you enter the park, the basketball courts will be right in front of you.
