Lawn bowling is a great outdoor sport that's perfect for Southern California's weather and its outdoor lifestyle!
A sport for all ages, it's simultaneously both social and competitive.
It's an international sport -- in much of the world bowlers begin participating as teenagers, and sometimes even earlier.
The Santa Anita bowling greens are located in Arcadia County Park in Arcadia, California --
on the west side of Santa Anita Ave. just south of Huntington Drive, one-half mile

There's convenient free parking next to the greens.

Santa Anita is one of only two clubs in the United States with four greens.

We always welcome new members; after only one or two lessons you're ready for social bowling.
