Back to the Present -- Watsessing Park Lawn Bowling

Saturday's annual Watsesssing Park Cleanup was highlighted by an instructional session at Lawn Bowling.  It was  led by members of the Essex County Lawn Bowling Club who have been utilizing the recently restored Bowling green that has been in use since since the beginning of the 20th Century. The sport was brought to the United States from England in the 17th century with the first settlers. Until recently, it was the only Bowling Green in NJ. The event was Sponsored by: The Bloomfield Open Space Trust Fund Committee, The Watsessing Park Conservancy and The Bloomfield Bicentennial Committee.
