I saw that there is a big gym in Northside Park on 125th St with a basketball court in it. I'm an avid basketball player, and Northside Park is within walking distance from our condo. Can you buy a pass to play, or is it free to go in there?

Hey Jake.  I also suggest calling Parks and Rec.  In my experience the gym is reserved for specific programs.  I have not heard of any pick-up games there though. There are pick-up games at Little Salisbury Park on 3rd Street. The players tend to be younger (under 30) and friendly. The park is just a $3 bus ride away.

There is also an outdoor court on 94th street that often has pickup games!

Yes, there is a large indoor gym at Northside Park at 125th Street. I believe it is free for walk-ins to use the gym, but I am not 100% sure of this. The gym is often used for tournaments and other events, so it is not always available for public use. I suggest calling the Parks Department at 410.250.0125 to check if the space is available, if you can reserve a court, and if there is anything else you need to do to play basketball there while you are in OC.
