Henry Sims Bent, landscape architect for Moana Park designed the lawn bowling green. 

The construction of the green was supervised by Lester McCoy. It was completed in 1937.

The first lawn bowls club in Honolulu was established in 1939.

The park was dedicated by President Roosevelt in 1934.

It was designed to be a "peoples park" for communities use.

One lagoon would be Hawaiian themed and the other named the Oriental lagoon.

The Kingdom of Hawaii donated Banyan trees to the park. 

Moana Park was renamed Ala Moana Park in 1947.

The beach was added in 1954. Since then it has been called Ala Moana Beach Park.  

The lawn bowling green is included in the Hawaii State Register of Historic Places.
