The expansive lawn surrounded by the lush Grand Hotel Tea Garden is a spectacular setting for croquet and bocce ball. Both sports were popular in America when Grand Hotel opened in 1887, and today they remain so at family gatherings, garden parties, and other social events.
We invite you to enjoy these quintessential summer pastimes with family and friends. All equipment is provided free of charge throughout the day, and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis in the Tea Garden, next to the swimming pool.
The lawn is also a great place for children and adults to stretch their legs. Spectators can sit on nearby benches to watch the friendly competition. (Don’t forget to take photos next to the Tea Garden’s stone fountain and topiaries!)
