More Info →Palmerston North Bowling Club, Taonui Street

The Bowling Green Company purchased 18 feet of land fronting Lombard Street, the property of Mrs Freeland, and also Mr Jepson's property in Taonui Street in order to create the Palmerston North Bowling Club. Made through Mr Mowlem's agency, the land cost around £480. One-half of the Jepson land was made into a four-rink green, leaving the three cottages on the other half intact, thus providing the revenue to pay the interest on the extended loan the club took out to pay for the property. A new pavilion was deemed necessary and a subscription was sought to raise the £37 16s. Mr John Lane won the tender to lay the green at a cost of £51 10s.
