Parc de Paris
Parc de Paris has one full court and two shoot-around areas. The full court has an urban feel to it. Whether it has a French feel should be decided by the players. Boris Diaw et Tony Parker, où êtes-vous?
The Scouting Report
This basketball court is useful if you just want to shoot around. It's not a place you're likely to find a decent game of pick-up ball though.
- The court is located in a densely populated area, so there's plenty of pick-up to be had.
- The court has adequate grip.
- The court is not well-lit.
- Be aware of the nearby fountain. Especially when driving to the hoop or throwin' Javale McGee-like passes.
- The court is much smaller than an official sized court
- The two shoot-around areas are not in a designated 'basketball' area. They are better suited for children.
Parc de Paris itself is a nice park.
If you're interested in some post-basketball food and drinks, Mokdong Station has an underrated restaurant/bar scene.

How To Get There
Parc de Paris is a little more than 1 kilometer from Omokgyo Station.
- Go out exit 2 from Omokgyo Station and walk straight for 20 meters until you reach a four-way intersection. Take a left.
- Walk about 40 meters until you see a street (Mokdongseo-ro) to your right. Cross the road and walk down this street.
- Continue for 920 meters. Parc de Paris will appear on your right.
**About 150 meters after you take a right onto Mokdongseo-ro, you will see Omok Park. This is NOT Parc de Paris.
