The Scouting Report
Cheonho Park's basketball offering has a unique draw. There are two courts that are suited for full-court games. The two courts sit side by side. They are almost completely identical. The only difference is that one is longer than the other. So, when deciding which court to play on, ask yourself, "Do I want to run more or less?"
Green asphalt. The surface has seen some use, but it is still in great shape. Pretty much all the normal markings are easily visible.
- There are two courts, side-by-side.
- For those times you want a full-court game but are a little winded, there is a shorter full court.
- The park's atmosphere is refreshing. The nearby musical fountain provides a great half-time show.
