St Johns Park Bowling Club was formed so that local people had the opportunity to play bowls in their own community, and bowls has remained at the heart of the Club ever since.
Like most bowling clubs around Australia, St Johns Park Bowling Club had humble beginnings. In 1951 a meeting was held among a group of local men with a shared vision of having a bowling green in the area. They pooled their resources, and with volunteer labour and donated materials, slowly created a green and club house. Play commenced on the Club’s single green in March 1953.
New housing developments in the area lead to greatly increased social membership and various extensions and upgrades were made to the club house throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, adding new dining and lounge areas.
The club continued to prosper and a new Club was completed by May 1999. Since then, the Club has undergone major refurbishments and membership continues to flourish. Today, the Club employs over 200 people and boasts three bowling greens, Powerhouse Sports Bar & Lounge, Pavilion Poker Room, three dining options (Cranky Little Chef, Mama Chow and LÁffaire Cafe) Function Facilities, Big Kahuna Sports Arena and a multi-level car park.
