West Seoul Lake Park is a fantastic piece of greenery. Sports isn't its strong suit, though. This is especially true for its basketball court. However, at least it does have a basketball court.
Sometimes you don't want a full court. Sometimes a half court is all you need. Whether it's to run a 3-on-3 half-court game or just to shoot around, the half-court basketball court at West Seoul Lake Park is just what the doctor ordered.
The court is in pretty good shape. The standard green outdoor court asphalt is nestled into a small cutout in the side of a hill. There is not much room to spare along the sidelines near the baseline, so don't go diving to save any balls heading out of play. However, this does provide plenty of shade for those hot summer afternoons.
