Sangdong Lake Park

Live in Bucheon? More specifically, do you live in Sangdong? Are you looking for a place to play basketball? If so, you are in luck. You've found your spot. Sangdong Lake Park has a couple of basketball courts that are great spots for finding decent pick-up games.

The Scouting Report

At Sangdong Lake Park, there are two full basketball courts that receive plenty of action, especially on the weekends. The competition isn't that high, but the players are serious enough that you can easily find a good game. For the amount of use that these courts see, they are in okay shape.


Standard outdoor basketball asphalt. The courts have seen a lot of wear and tear over the years. The paint has faded and there are a few spots in the keys where the footing isn't too reliable. However, overall, it's a good basketball game and gets the job done.
