West Park Bowling services

West Park opened its doors to the public in 1946. As a proud family-owned and fully licensed bowling business, the facility has come a long way in modernisation. In 2016, the site finally finished its full-scale renovation. We all owe it to the addition of computerized scoring devices, as well as updated bowling equipment that meets many of our services. 

That said, we have maintained our historic ‘60s-style diner as a reminder to the local community that West Park is a little bit of the old and the new. While we have upgraded our bowling equipment, we still want to make your visits a memorable one. 

Through our clean, vibrant ambience, and wholesome family dining and entertainment, West Park is your home away from home. When you have visited our place, make sure that you get to take a group photo from our small photo booth, and put it on our white wall that is solely for pictures from families and friends.

  1. Summer bowling classes

While people play bowling during leisure time, this target sport is played as a league at high levels. Here in Canada, there are 4 major bowling leagues. People ranging from youth to adulthood enrol themselves in bowling lessons. In doing so, lessons certainly increase their existing bowling skills.

With West Part as your guide to this sport, our broad set of bowling lessons are tailored to your needs. Each session has a synergistic teaching method where students are taught through ‘classroom’ discussion and lane practice. The techniques, rules, gameplay, ball dynamics, position stance, and mental game are commonly included in every session. 

Since West Park opens at noon every day, the time written below for each class is half a day practice. But, we also allow lessons and training sessions during our opening hours. Please be informed that rates may vary depending on the changes of time. 


The lessons are divided based on the types of bowling, which are the following:
