Parc de Paris
Basketball

Parc de Paris has one full court and two shoot-around areas. The full court has an urban feel to it. Whether it has a French feel should be decided by the players. Boris Diaw et Tony Parker, où êtes-vous?


The Scouting Report

This basketball court is useful if you just want to shoot around. It's not a place you're likely to find a decent game of pick-up ball though.

Pros

  • The court is located in a densely populated area, so there's plenty of pick-up to be had.
  • The court has adequate grip.

Cons

  • The court is not well-lit.
  • Be aware of the nearby fountain. Especially when driving to the hoop or throwin' Javale McGee-like passes.
  • The court is much smaller than an official sized court
  • The two shoot-around areas are not in a designated 'basketball' area. They are better suited for children.

Extra Info

Parc de Paris itself is a nice park.

If you're interested in some post-basketball food and drinks, Mokdong Station has an underrated restaurant/bar scene.
