The Parks & Recreation Department has established and will enforce preventative measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in its programs and facilities. The Recreation and Service Staff is undertaking every effort to keep facilities clean; our patrons must wear masks and remain socially distanced. Individual instructors must meet our standards and may add additional precautions to their programs. Program participants and park patrons should be aware that, by participating in any passive or active recreational activity, they are increasing their risk of contracting COVID-19. Please understand that program offerings, facility operations, and park use may differ from the past as we continue to follow the guidance of the CDC for Administrators of Parks & Recreation Facilities and the directives of the Ohio Board of Health and the Governor's office.
Please continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing at all times, and get vaccinated when it is your turn.
The Mayfield Village Recreation Department has 4 Bocce Courts with lights available at the Parkview Recreation Area located off of S.O.M. Center Road. The courts are programmed through the Recreation Department, and for additional information call 440.461.5163 or check out our program guide. There is least one court available for open play throughout the week.
Bocce is an international game and sport. Second only to soccer, it is the most played sport in the world. It is one of the earliest known games although the exact time and place of origin are difficult to pinpoint. The game was originally played with polished stones and involved tossing the stones with the intent of coming close to a smaller target stone. Today, bocce ball is a calming, competitive way to spend a few hours outdoors in the pleasant company of friends.
