On the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month throughout the “rolling season” (May to October) the public is invited to play croquet on the Woodland Park lawns from 6 p.m. to dusk at no charge. The necessary equipment is provided by the Woodland Park Lawn Bowling, Bocce, and Croquet Club (WPLBC), with instruction in golf croquet, the simplest form of the game. Players are required to wear flat soled shoes which will not damage the lawns. WPLBC is a member of the United States Croquet Association (USCA). From time to time it has tournaments. Usually, a tournament has an entry fee. More info: Croquet (wplbc.org). Be warned that navigation devices like Siri and Google Maps can’t find the location. They mistake walking paths and parks equipment roads within the park for through streets and steer trusting users into dead ends. But here is a link to driving instructions from the WPLBC website.
