Welcome to the Dunbar Lawn Bowling Club

Opened in 1928 and nestled in parkland in the heart of Dunbar, our club offers both lawn bowling and croquet on a beautiful, natural grass green.  We are a friendly club that welcomes new members and encourages outside groups to use our facilities to host unique team-building experiences.

Follow the links below, then visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to find out more about the easy-to-learn and highly sociable sports of lawn bowling and croquet.

Lawn Bowling

Combining the rules, tactics, and sociability of curling with the enjoyment of playing in a warm, green oasis in the middle of the city, lawn bowling is a perfect way to enjoy those long summer days in a friendly and fun environment. Click here to learn more.

Croquet

This isn't the backyard game you remember from your youth!  Imagine a combination of chess and snooker on a large putting green in the middle of a forest and you have croquet at Dunbar.  Click here to learn more.

Our Generous Sponsors

Dunbar Lawn Bowling Club is a community-based, not-for-profit society funded primarily from membership fees.  However, we are very fortunate to have in our community a number of businesses that take a genuine interest in sponsoring healthy, life-long, outdoor activities in the Dunbar neighbourhood.

 

Please click here and take a moment to learn more about these generous sponsors right here in Dunbar.

 

Donations

Our club operates on premises within Memorial Park West administered by the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation (BPR). We serve as the custodians of the BPR's premises and devote the bulk of our membership fees to doing so.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the BPR to assist in the upkeep of this piece of Memorial Park West, you may do so by visiting https://donate.vancouver.ca/DLBC. Your donation will be directed to our club and be put to good use in maintaining one of Dunbar's most picturesque green spaces and its original 1928 clubhouse.

Thank you!
