All about the Club
The Elmdale Lawn Bowling Club is one of the oldest clubs, and the only two-green facility, in the Ottawa Valley. It is located in the Civic Hospital district, at the western end of Reid Park, situated in a pastoral setting with lovely lawns and mature trees, but with plenty of free parking.
The Club can be reached by taking the Parkdale exit off Hwy. 417 (the Queensway), turning south onto Parkdale Ave., then left onto Sherwood Dr. (first cross-street), then left onto MacFarlane St. (first stop sign). The Club is straight ahead (go right around the east green; parking is behind the club-house).
Club members bowl every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings starting at 10:00am; every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 7:00pm and Sunday’s at 1:30pm. In addition, as a member club of District 16, Ontario Lawn Bowls Association, the Club hosts a number of one-day tournaments and two-day District championships each year.
Croquet Ottawa, the only club of its kind in the Ottawa Valley, is an associate club of the Elmdale Lawn Bowling Club, and uses one of its greens on Monday evenings. It also hosts an international croquet tournament in August each year.
