    I believe the bocce ball courts are funded from donations, not the City.

    What did they pay for the land that they’re using? Zero dollars? I think so.

    And the donors had a bad attitude towards those who wanted a playground put there.

    So why do we have bocce courts there?

    I hope they put in artificial turf! Camping on grass was a bad idea. If only the camp had stayed on the surrounding concrete the center would have been a wonderful tourist and play area. Now it’s mostly unused space, if pretty to look at.

    Great, now that the place is not barricaded, nobody will be using it, as usual. Aside from overflow from an occasional special event, the south side of Bradley Manning Plaza (previously, Justin Herman Plaza), #OccupySF was the only group, I know of, to ever really use it. Cheers

    Some people used it. But if there were a playground there, it would get used every day…

    To be honest I didn’t even know what bocce ball was until now, so I guess Occupy achieved something after all…
