Jeongalsan Park's basketball court sits behind the Goyang Aram Nuri Arts Center and at the foot of Jeongbal Mountain. It is a splendid basketball court hidden away from the chaos of the city. Although the basketball court is off the well-trodden path, it is a popular place for pick-up games. It is perhaps the best court in Ilsan at which to find regular pick-up games.
The Scouting Report
Jeongbalsan Park's basketball court, though a bit hidden, is not far from busy Jeongbalsan Station on line 3 in Ilsan. As such, it gets plenty of action. Especially on the weekends. It is a great place to find a game of pick-up ball. Just make sure you keep winning once you get on the court. If you lose, you may have to wait a while to get back on the court.
Nothing But Net (Why you should play here)
- Scenic location. A thick row of trees border the court on 3 sides. On the other side is a lovely park at the base of Jeongbal Mountain.
- Lots of pick-up games (weekdays). There is a steady flow of traffic, so it is easy to find pick-up games.
- As far as municipal park basketball courts go, this one has decent lighting. Night games are no problem here.
Off The Front of the Rim (Why you should not play here)
- Pick-up games (weekends). There is a heavy flow of traffic. It can be difficult to get court time because there are so many players.
Bathrooms and water fountains are available near the court. That should make those needing a drink or a place to relieve themselves happy.
There are picnic tables in the nearby park. They are perfect for pre-, mid-, or postgame snacking. (although midgame snacking is not advised)
