This is a very well maintained and very popular bocce ball court set up with plenty of parking in central San Rafael. It is a little pricey but it is an excellent facility. If it is a hot day, it can be pretty toasty so bring plenty of fluids. We brought some snacks and beverages and had a fun afternoon.... More

Each year our nearby Chamber of Commerce has its annual bocce ball fund raiser here. I had never been before and was truly amazed by the thought, planning, and excellent bocce ball courts. They are constructed from genuine Italian sand and are wonderful to enjoy. In addition, they are impeccably maintained and surrounding areas include lush greenery, tables, chairs, and... More

If you are looking for something to do with the whole family consider renting a court here. The leagues are good fun too.

Very fun place to play bocce. Near the Panama Hotel and restaurant. We spent a fun afternoon here. The venue also can host weddings, so if you are looking for a spot to host your wedding and let your guests play bocce, this is a good spot to do so.

I previously played on a league here and then moved to Sonoma Count, but I miss this place. Bocce is a fun sport that anyone can play at any age. There are BBQ's and picnic tables so bring your libations and food assortments and have fun. Remember to wear appropriate shoes, no heeled shoes on the court.

Wonderful setting in which to enjoy the game of bocce. Close to downtown and Safeway so finding chow and a brew is easy. Friendly staff who will provide the bocce balls and teach the game. All day for $4.00. Best deal in the Bay Area.

Take some wine and cheese, sit at the picnic tables and just watch the fun. There is a great rose garden next door truly worth the walk over. It is the best place to sit and enjoy watching people

Great place for an authentic bocce ball competition. It can be hot in the summer, so make sure to wear sunscreen and a hat.
