Sinsa Neighborhood Park
Sinsa Neighborhood Park isn't a big park, but it is a good one. It has a few simple athletic facilities available for public use. Additionally, the park has great walking trails considering how small the park actually is.
The Scouting Report
Badminton. A sport for all seasons. Whether it's ice badminton, spring badminton, summer badminton, or fall badminton, Sinsa Neighborhood Park has you covered. It offers four well-maintained badmintonn courts that are surrounded by pine trees (they look like pine trees...are they really???). Game on!
Gravel. It's tight, just like your hamstring if you don't do your stretches.
- Four well-maintained badminton courts. Count em'. 4!
- The courts are surrounded by a trees and a viewing area. This gives the courts a sense of isolation and seclusion
- The courts don't get too crowded.
- Although the courts are at a higher elevation, the trees provide an excellent windbreak.
- It is close to a subway station.
- Bathrooms and drinking fountains are not nearby. However, there are a few bushes.
Things to Consider
The park itself is worth a look. Play some badminton after working out on the free weights or doing some yoga. Feel free to do something else, too.
