Overall its a pretty good house. The lanes don’t provide the best shot. A little too heavy on the oil in our league. I’m told the “better” leagues don’t have that issue. 75% of our better bowlers averages are down this year… not good! Bill is a good listener. His hands might be tied or too busy to do anything about it 🙁

I grew up on Blackbird Street, across from Parkway Bowl. That tall sign was a beacon on Fletcher Pkwy $ Cuyamaca. It helped me get home if I was out after dark. I miss it.

Leagues if your thinking of joining make sure you know the people I joined this year for the summer league and at the orientation this guy stops me and my husband and when he finds out it’s only me joining on friday night he said he has a opening that I could be on his team. The first couple of week were good then on memorial weekend his wife and son don’t show so normal night we shared pitchers of beer then I rented a lane when our league was over with some friends told him he should sober up before driving home no drives home next week the wife blames me I told her he’s grown guy 20 years older than me then the next week she does not show up and him and his sons with there friend drinking and doing shots. So they tell the waitress that I needed to be cut off I was drunk and the waitress is there friend so she believes they were feeding me drinks even though I did not pay for any except the two I ordered I was not doing anything out of the oridnary so she cut me off. Instead of them telling me they want me off there team instead they made me look like the bad guy. So they had a good reason to kick me off there team. No big deal so I started my own team. Because of this incident there was a strike against me.Two weeks with my new team one of my team mates brung acohol in and we got kicked out for the night guilty by association Not knowing the consequences of these incidents that were not my fault went to the manager that sunday explained everything and took responsibility for these actions told him that I was guity by association and hope this does not reflect on me that I would not stand by this manager said no problem or he would had got an e-mail if this was a huge issue thinking that this was a good thing then two days later he called me and said I could not drink until the summer league is over but I could still bowl I bowl 2 night week wenesdays with my husband no problems.There were no problems with me they did’nt even know who I was until these incidents So heres a person who took responsibility and said yes guilty by association and they never had a problem with me until I got placed on the wrong team and pick a bad team mate why should I be punished. For someone who’s wife is joulous or someones bad judgement.I spent alot of money bowling two nights a week plus paying $8.00 for a shot I have no money troubles never been rude to the staff. But I still get punish for some one elses actions and lies. Guy that gets drunk and is disrepecting the waitreses by grabbing her only gets band for the night and is drinking the next night what is wrong with this picture. I have a family a business and responsible like not DRINKING or DRIVING friday night were my night to let loose i got dropped off and picked up because I drink. Then some of there staff treats you like your this bad person. When I even apolagize to there waitress that cut me off and said sorry and that I understood she was doing her job but I was never rude when she cut off. I have seen some people who are rude and do not tip. This place use to be fun and now it’s like your the bad guy. they never see how you are as a person they take other peoples words. No rules they make them up as you go would I have known this I would have never joined the league knowing your team mates can make you look like a trouble maker and would have checked my team mates bags if I was the one responsible for there stupity and you would think that they would want responsible people who are willing to have a enough guts to admit they were in the wrong when the other team mate would not even apologize for his mistake I agree he should be cut off for good even kicked out.thet punish the good and honest people

Does anyone remember the big vertical “P-A-R-K-W-A-Y” sign that used to light up at night, in sequence, then shimmer and flash? There was bowling and the movie theater. Driving down Fletcher Parkway from Fletcher Hills, we would get so excited to see it.

i have been bowling here since i was 2 years old, and now i am a teen. the people that work there are the nicest people you can know. the food is really good, and they have a huge arcade with about 125 games. really great coaches, and the pro shop owner was a gret pro named alvin lou. can you beat mark roth, i know he can. they have great lanes , except on saturday morinings, because it is a drastic wet dry.At least this place doesnt get bought like valley bowl did. This is a great place for bowling, fun, and pretty much everything else. Parkway forever.
