I hope you are going to rebuild because we use to bowl there. And now we have to drive to Blue Ball Bowling Alley to bowl and that is a long drive but we like it there. But we miss Garden Spot Bowling Alley. It was cheap to bowl and the food was always good and cheap also. Plus the people where alway nice to you there.

Garden Spot is currently not open for business. The center burned to the ground in the fire mentioned below. Thankfully, no one was injured. The owners have told us they intend to rebuild. Many of us are pleased to hear that and are anxiously waiting.

STRASBURG, LANCASTER COUNTY� Fire crews battle a major fire at the Garden Spot Bowling Center in Lancaster County. The fire broke out shortly at 9 o’clock Wednesday night at the bowling alley along the 200 block of North Decatur street in Strasburg Borough. There were people inside when the fire started but they got out safely. One witness described the scene.
“Scary, We smelled it first then someone yelled ‘get out’. There’s a fire! We started running out as the ceiling tiles started falling all around us, declared Lauren Robinson, of Strasburg.
The fire quickly grew to 4 alarms, with crews and tankers pouring in the Borough from surrounding communities.

I am the marketing/promotions director here at Garden Spot Bowl. First I want to reply to “anonymous” and their ball mishap. Sir/madam, I am sorry if this truly did happen to you, I would like to think that no counter staff here would ever act that way, but unfortunately I cannot watch and listen to our counter staff at all times. If this truly did happen, I only wish that you would have sought out management to help sort this out. Please feel free to call me here at the center 717-687-7648, or email me at and tell me the details. I thank all for the compliments, and constructive criticism. Thanks as always for bowling here and I hope to see and hear from anonymous soon!

I was in there a few months ago and i left my ball there, and i called saying that i did and they found it, but they refused to give it back to me and said they would let other people use it and then they hung up on me. After calling back a few times, the lady told me to get a life and threatened to call the police. This is not the type of customer service i would expect from a top quality bowling alley, so it is obviously not one.

um hey dude no lanes can stay the same way… its like that everywhere. As long as your a good bowler…you should hit your mark 95% of the time, and after about 3 games you should have to adjust because the oil will be different…

I’d rather say that they do know how to take care of their lanes here and there. I hate when you come in one night, and shoot good. Walk in another night and shoot crappy. No lanes should be that way. I am going to dutch next fall to bowl. Sorry.

Place is a wall no need to give any good reviews about this easy house

The bowling center has always been there for me. I’ve been bowling there since I was 5 years old. I’ve gone and came back because I realized what a great place it was to bowl there. Only the bowlers that bowl there know that it is a great place to bowl.

i like garden spot bowl alot but the one and only thing i hate is when people who barely know you are constantly in your business. This is the one and only thing i hate about Garden Spot Bowl.

Garden Spot is great place to bowl. The lanes are kept in good shape and the pro shop is open and reliable, unlike the one at Downingtown Palace. The people are fine. If they are “Hicks” as “Wangsta” says, what was he/she doing there??

I’ve never seen so many hicks. And the one older fat lady behind the counter is a mean crab…needs an enema.
