A popular game found in Europe will soon hit a local park in Torrance.
Torrance City Council will look to approve an agreement about the installation of Bocce Courts at Columbia Park. Bocce is a European game that was first played among Italians. It is similar to lawn bowling and is played on a long rectangular court. The project came about after Bocce enthusiasts approached the city to construct these courts. It includes the installation of 3 regular size bocce courts near the east parking lot off Prairie Avenue. The Public Works Department along with Community Services are looking to get funds to not only construct the project, but also make improvements nearby.
