San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza is about to get a new look.

Mayor Gavin Newsom led the groundbreaking today for two new bocce courts.

The courts will be state of the art, perfect for tournament competition as well as recreational use.

They are expected to be open in a week and a half with private donors footing the $150,000 construction cost.
