Lawn Bowling is a fun opportunity for corporate outings, team building and celebrations with friends or family. Games are geared towards mixing and mingling, for celebrating life events, or creating a unique picnic. We welcome groups of family, friends, and business associates to learn the game of Lawn Bowls. Please consider having the Milwaukee Lake Park Lawn Bowling Association host your group. To get started, please contact our group events coordinator to request a date and time. Once a date and time is confirmed our group events coordinator will email you a link to make your reservation online.

Your Event: Our club provides all necessary equipment and instruction. Flat soled shoes without a heel are the only requirement for all guests. Your event begins by selecting lawn bowls available in various hand sizes. We will set up the green and playing equipment and then teach basic rules while demonstrating the game. You will learn bowls delivery, order of play, and how to score by counting the “shots” or points. Guests will then play their own exciting game of bowls!
