Recreation: 5-Pin Bowling Alley

Bowling Parties & Group Rates

Bowling Parties Info

The TGCA Bowling Alley is a fully equipped and fun for the whole family facility. With 4 lanes of 5-pin bowling, there’s plenty of room for you and the kids, or you and your pals to come down and roll a ball or two! 

Sorry, no outside food or drink allowed, except BIRTHDAY CAKES! 

The bowling alley is very popular for parties, and there is a party room in the back of the alley included in your party package that’s perfect for opening gifts and having cake. Nom! 

Hours:

The lanes are available to book from 11 am – 10 pm, Monday – Saturday, and 11 am – 5 pm on Sundays.

Book your party:

Bowling party packages are available to book through our website but you may only book a minimum of a week in advance.

Choose which package you would like from the options below, check the availability of the dates you would like and submit your inquiry. A staff member will contact you to confirm your booking and an email payment page will be sent to your provided email address.

If we have not received confirmation within 48 hours of contacting you, your booking inquiry and/or payment window will expire, and that time slot will be opened for other booking inquiries.

Cancellation:

Online cancellation policy: you may cancel your bowling party two weeks or more ahead of the booked date with no penalty. If you cancel within two weeks, you will be given a refund to the card that you paid with less an admin fee of 15% from the total.

Lockdown contingency: if the province or the city announce new restrictions that force the cancellation of your bowling party, you will receive a full refund to the card that you paid with.
