The 2016 Canadian Lawn Bowls Championships will be held at Commonwealth Lawn Bowling Club. Located in North West Edmonton, in the midst of busy Coronation Park, the club proudly hosted the 1978 Commonwealth bowls tournament and was honoured to have Queen Elizabeth observe the Games.  The club has also had the privilege of hosting many Provincial Tournaments as well as previous National events including the 2014 Singles Championship. One of the largest facilities of its kind in Canada, the club has four beautifully maintained greens to play on.
