Outdoor Bocce Courts

Atlanta Area Parks with Outside Bocce Ball Courts

Bocce Ball (aka Lawn Bowling) is a fun game that has been around for centuries and can be played by all ages. It has gained popularity in Atlanta over the last few years, with multiple bars and restaurants setting up courts and organized social leagues.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID situation, many of the usual avenues to play bocce are on hold or limited. No worries, we found public parks around Atlanta that have outdoor bocce courts. They are open, they are free, and you can find the details below.
