Parks and Outdoor Recreation Facilities - Thomas Street

Nelson, BB9 9AY

The two bowling greens are generally used from April through to October by Thomas Street Bowling Club who use the greens as their home base for league fixtures and for casual use.  

One of the greens is floodlit allowing the Club to use the facility for night games and during the winter months weather permitting. 

The greens are FREE to use and are open to all sections of the local community. Please note that woods are not provided and users must take their own.
