The Scouting Report
When you consider the scenery surrounding a basketball court, it doesn't get much better than the basketball court in Ilsan Lake Park. Even though it sits on the far side of the park from the main entrances, that only forces most people to enjoy the scenery the park has to offer while they are getting to the court. Fortunately, to complement the scenery, the court plays hosts to plenty of pick-up games on the weekends. Basically, if you are looking for a place to play basketball in Ilsan, this is not a bad choice.
