Bocce CourtsJuniper North

The Bocce Court at Juniper Valley Park is closed for construction. The existing double-bocce court will be repaired and resurfaced to improve play and comfort, and an entirely new bocce court will be constructed to increase playing capacity. New custom shade canopies will be installed at the ends of each court to add aesthetic interest and provide users with protection from the sun. Finally, a new sitting area will be added between the courts with new pavement, more comfortable benches, and trees to add greenspace and additional shade.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2014
