Northside Bocce Club
What is it?
is a traditional Italian outdoor bowling game. It is easy to learn and
fun to play. The Northside Bocce Club
is open to players of all ages and experience levels. The Northside Neighborhood
is lucky to have some of the best bocce courts in the western United States.
They have been recently renovated with new crushed oyster shell playing
surfaces and are ready to be used.

Park is in downtown San Jose with boundaries and parking on North 13th
St., North 15th St., East Empire St. and Jackson St.
The Neighborhood Association has several sets of bocce balls that you can
use for free. Keys to the bocce courts and the loaner sets of bocce balls are available from Rollos Donuts, Chiaramonte's Market and Bronco's Mexican Restaurant at the corner of Backesto Park on E. Empire and N. 13th Streets.
