James Gardens Lawn Bowling Club
Nestled among mature trees in a natural setting across the Humber River from the Lambton Golf and Country Club, James Gardens Lawn Bowling Club offers recreational activities to members seven days a week from May to October. Wildlife, picnickers, cyclists, and folks out for a stroll often stop to observe the bowlers in this tranquil environment. Overhead lighting permits bowlers to continue to play after sunset early and late in the season.
Follow the paved trail in from the ample parking lot past the welcoming club sign through the tall blue spruce trees and across a meandering stream. After a one-minute walk, the path opens up to reveal colourful flowerbeds, the bowling green and the clubhouse. Park maintenance staff actively ensure that the lawns, woods, flowers, playing area, clubhouse, and all other facilities are in top condition.
Flower gardens either side of the gateway to the playing surface greet members and visitors. The green surrounded by 120-centimetre fence is reserved exclusively for lawn bowling. The green is covered by artificial turf, which provides a consistent surface upon which to bowl. Drying quickly after rain and drought resistant the green is kept in excellent condition.
Shaded seating areas are available for players waiting for their turns to bowl. Each of these locations is bordered by chalkboards on which scores are kept. Three drinking spots provide water for thirsty bowlers. Shaded storage areas are available behind the benches for the stowing of carry bags and other equipment.
