Seaside Unveils New Pétanque Park

Seaside recently unveiled a unique addition to its recreational offerings with the new Pétanque Park. Pétanque originated in France and is widely played throughout Europe. The game is cousin to horseshoes and bocce and the objective is to toss or roll hollow metal balls (“boules”) as close as possible to a small wooden ball (“cochonnet”). The park is available to everyone free of charge, though players must bring their own equipment to play. Seasoned or novice players are all welcome—no prior experience is necessary.
