Team building, company socials, birthday parties, weddings, family parties: we’ve hosted them all. Our Alexander Muir Park setting at the western Discovery Walk trailhead instills a special “summer in the city” relaxed enjoyment. The greens are equipped with floodlights for evening functions.
We have a kitchen, covered eating areas, benches and tables. A barbecue grill is available and there is a PA system. Most groups bring their own food. We even had groups hiring food trucks. Parking is free in the lot east of the greens but most use the subway. Lawrence station is four blocks north of us.
Our guest fee is $20 per person – minimum charge $300. A deposit of $100 is requested at the time of booking with balance due upon your group’s arrival at our club. Our Events Coordinator will help schedule a date and answer questions. Cheques or cash are accepted – receipts are available.
LIQUOR: Because this is a city park, alcohol is not normally allowed. However, if you procure your own LCBO permit, you may serve, but not sell it to anyone in your group. You will also need insurance to cover any damages associated with alcohol consumption. We are insured for people using the club and the greens but that does not cover any problems relating to alcohol. Both your permit and your proof of insurance must be presented to us upon your arrival and all guests must sign a waiver at the office.
The LCBO often ask for a site layout, so they can confirm features such as fencing, space, restriction of the general public. A layout of the facilities can be found here: Club layout
We recommend you print it and take it with you when applying at an LCBO outlet.
We provide everithing you’ll need, just wear flat-soled shoes on our greens at all times (ordinary sneakers are OK). Our volunteers will set up the greens for either lawn bowling or croquet, and provide a quick training session and ongoing coaching.
If you wish to proceed, please advise us of your Group’s Name (if applicable), your contact details, your preferred date and timing along with any alternative dates, and your choice of lawn bowling or croquet. We also need to know if you plan to consume alcohol on our premises, and the approximate number in your group so we can plan an appropriate number of volunteers.
