Glebe Manor Lawn Bowling Club To Be Sold

Sadly, the historic Glebe Manor Lawn Bowling Club ceased operations in 2013 and the property is up for sale. If you want to look at a graceful piece of Toronto history, drive along Manor Road. The small white clubhouse, with its trim green lawn, is on the north-east corner of Mount Pleasant Road, immediately behind the shops on Mount Pleasant.

SERRA opposes putting any high-rise building here, like the tall condos you see on Yonge Street and Eglinton. Councillor Matlow is holding a public meeting on Wednesday, June 18 at 7pm at Hodgson Senior Public School (282 Davisville Avenue) about putting a park here. Meanwhile, there is a proposal by a developer to put townhouses on this site. A Toronto Star article does a good job of describing the alternatives. The reader comments to the Star article echo when we have heard from local residents and are well worth reading. SERRA would like to hear your position on this important issue. Contact us at

To support the park proposal, a petition has been started, called “City of Toronto: Stop the Development of Glebe Manor Lawn Bowling Club” on You can access this petition online here.
