VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – You can already work-out, skate, and shoot hoops there; how about knocking over a few pins? A Vancouver city councillor suggests community centres would be great locations for bowling alleys.
“We have got, at a city level, a real commitment to a healthy city. And I think bowling is one of the healthiest activities for the widest range of people, including young kids, seniors, and teens,” she tells us.
“The threat of losing [Varsity Ridge] is really making people upset and I think the city should step in,” says Carr.
She’s spoken with the city manager of Langford, near Victoria, where something similar was recently tried after the loss of a private bowling centre.
“[He told] me that he thought it was the best investment they’ve ever made. It’s making money for the city, it’s packed all the time… people love it,” explains Carr.
