Ttukseom Resort Park is a great place to spend an afternoon or a day. Situated alongside the Han River, it has a man-made water fountain, a skate park, a picnic area, bike trails, and basketball courts. The courts are busy and scenic.


The Scouting Report

There's one thing to be said for the basketball courts at Ttukseom Resort Hangang Park: They have great scenery. Actually, there's a little more that could be said. They also play home to some pretty decent pick-up basketball games. Day, night, weekend, weekday, etc. You can always count on Ttukseom Resort for basketball games.

Surface

Green hard top. Similar to Yonsei University's. A little slick, but it does the job.

Pros

  • Competitive games
  • Options - There are two full courts, and usually there are four half court games going on. The games usually get divided naturally by skill level. You can easily join in.
  • Scenery - The Han River also sits behind the courts. During the day it makes for a great view.
  • Night Games - Games go on until late. I’ve been there until eleven and all the courts have been full.

Cons

  • Dim Lighting - The lights stay on until late but the lighting isn’t the greatest. There are four light posts on each corner of the court. This makes for some dark spots. It takes a little while to get used to.
  • Late Start Times - During weekdays, the courts don’t get going until the evening.

Cool Down

There is a convenience store close to the courts. Thirst is everything. Obey your thirst.
