“The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and the city’s lawn bowling club reopened its lawn bowling green Tuesday [November 18th] at 10 a.m. at the oldest municipal lawn bowling club in the United States.
In 1901, Superintendent of San Francisco parks John McLaren laid out the green in Golden Gate Park, and co-founded the bowling club. The green is currently considered San Francisco landmark number 181.”
