How late are you open?

Though our closing time is determined ultimately by business volume, we generally will not close any earlier than 11 PM.


Can we bring in our own food?

As a safety and sanitation measure, we do not allow outside food or beverages to be brought inside. Parkside offers a full array of food and drinks.




How old do you have to be to bowl?

With new innovations, kids as young as 2 can enjoy bowling! We offer 4 pound bowling balls & assistive ramps for kids to ensure that they're in on the fun, too.
