Part of the Ala Moana Park complex, the Lawn Bowling Green was designed by architect Harry Sims Bent and built with the help of federal funds and FERA and CWA labor. “Constructed in 1939, the lawn bowling green was the last of Harry Sims Bent’s designs for Ala Moana Park. It remains today the only lawn bowling green in Honolulu.”
