“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for a place to practice my ball skills for soccer. I was wondering if you or anyone in the community would know of a park or grassy area that has a wall that could be used to kick the ball against? Something like a retaining wall, not an apartment building/something that would disturb people etc. Thanks!”
