Four square for adults at Rockridge BART

Recess isn’t just for kids anymore…

If you’ve ever walked through the parking lot at Oakland’s Rockridge BART late on a Thursday night, you may have seen a group of raucous twenty- and thirtysomethings yelling and drinking beer. But they’re not a bunch of hooligans — they are out there playing a friendly game of four square. Listen in on this audio podcast to hear how a group of Oakland friends have turned this kids’ game into a way for grown-ups to socialize out on the “urban playground.”

This story previously aired on KALW’s Crosscurrents radio show.

    This is so wonderful. I was astounded when I read this. I grew up in Oakland over 40 years ago and we played four square! all the time… Also, hide and seek for hours on summer nights.
