Bocce Court Project
In partnership with Friends of Baker Park and the City of Frederick, and with YOUR HELP… we plan on breaking ground Fall 2021, building four permanent bocce courts in Baker Park across from the iconic Carillon (Bell Tower).
We are still seeking donations for a few more benches! There are also engraved pavers available for donations of $150 or more.
Thank you for your support.
Thank You! to all of the local businesses and individuals who have already donated. You are helping to get Frederick County “off of the couch and into the park”.
Everyone is Welcome!
Bocce is a game for all ages and skill levels. It’s social. It’s fun. It’s free… and it’s easy to learn!
Usually we play on Sunday (weather dependent) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Once the courts are built, Frederick Bocce will continue to host the Sunday evening pick up games and will begin Wednesday evening league play during the playing season.
