Lanes 1&2

Lanes 1&2 at Parkview were installed a year or two after the center opened in 1940.  As such, they are separate from lanes 3-8.  This offers a truly unique bowling experience rarely available to the bowling community!

Honor scoreboard

Parkview's traditional bowling conditions don't yield the large number of high scores seen in other bowling centers.  As such, Parkview takes great pride when one if its bowlers has a particularly successful day on the lanes.  The high game/series bowled on each pair during the season are posted on our high score board.

HOF scoreboard

House records and honor scores are posted on our permanent Hall of Fame board, which covers scores thrown at Parkview since 1981.


Parkview is one of the few bowling centers in the Rochester area to still have wood lanes...


...and the last center in our area to keep score with pencil and paper.


Once commonplace in Rochester, Parkview is the last center in the area to feature vintage masking units with working "pindication"!

Foul light

The long history of Parkview Bowl is all around the center...even our foul lights are vintage AMF units.
