Atlanta Area Parks with Outside Bocce Ball Courts

Bocce Ball (aka Lawn Bowling) is a fun game that has been around for centuries. Bocce is popular among all ages and has gained mainstream attention over the past few years, with multiple bars, parks, and restaurants adding courts and organized social leagues.

Various public parks around Atlanta have bocce courts. The type of courts varies from park to park; below, you can see all the details we've discovered. We also noticed that most courts do not have bocce balls. If you are looking for a set, here are some excellent choices from Amazon.
