Bocce ball returns to Koons Park

The bocce ball courts at Koons Park that fell into disrepair in recent years have been upgraded and are ready to be put into use this week. And, if you’re really into this kind of sport, the courts can also be used for a game called petanque.

Odds are you’re not familiar with bocce and petanque. Well, you have a chance to change that this week.

The Rotary Club of Colonial Club and the Lower Paxton Twp. Parks and Recreation Dept. will be holding an open house on the courts at Koons Park on Wednesday, July 19 from 6 to 8 pm and Thursday, July 20 from 1 to 3 pm and 6 to 8 pm.

Township residents are welcome to come and see the improvements made at the park at the open house sessions and meet members of the Rotary Club to hear the plans for all courts and how residents can become involved in helping to organize activities. There will also be a demonstration of all activities provided and the equipment used.

The Rotary Club has made this possible through the generosity of the club members who continue to assist the parks and recreation department improve the recreational activities for residents of Lower Paxton Twp.
