Soon Middle Village residents can say buon giorno to new bocce courts.

Local elected officials and the Parks Department joined members of the community on October 3 for the groundbreaking of a nearly $1 million project to repair the deteriorating Juniper Valley Park bocce courts.

The Parks Department will renovate the two existing courts and construct a third. The agency will also install new seating, tables and trees around the courts and Plexiglas structures over each to provide shade during the summer.

“Today’s ground breaking for the bocce courts in Juniper Valley Park marks the start of an investment in our parks that will provide a safe and refurbished area for visitors of all ages to relax and enjoy this sport,” said Borough President Helen Marshall, who allocated $800,000 to the project.

The new bocce courts are set to open in the spring of 2014.
