Seoul Forest is one of Seoul's premier parks. It is extremely popular, but not too overcrowded. That's because there is a lot of space; it is a BIG park. In one corner of the park, there are quite a few sports facilities clustered together. Among them, there is a fairly popular basketball court.
As mentioned previously, a decent basketball court anchors the park's sports corner. It isn't flashy or overly pristine. It is a fairly unassuming court. But it gets the job done. It is in good shape and facilitates a steady flow of games.
What do you expect? The court sits on a spacious slab of asphalt. The court is painted reddish brown and the out-of-bounds is green. The key and 3-point arch is clearly marked, but there is no half-court line.
There are several restaurants, convenience stores, cafes, etc. a mere 1 minute walk from the court. Many of them have outdoor patio seating.
Check out the Seoul Forest photo album to see more pictures of the area.

From Bundang Line - Seoul Forest Station (서울숲역):
-Leave through exit 3. Turn right at the first intersection. Look for Seoul Forest's Gate 1 entrance on your right. Then, make your way in the direction of the 2 towering buildings that dominate the skyline. The basketball court is near the base of the tower on the left.
