This place is a cultural institution serving generations of Edmontonians. Seriously! How many of your parents, and grand parents bowled here since it opened!? Edmonton has a fascinating appreciation for bowling. As an accessible and affordable past time, bowling has been an activity with deep roots in Edmonton's working class neighbourhoods. Plaza Bowling is a great story of a family run business in Edmonton, and the venue itself is a time warp taking you all the way back to the 60s. It would be great to be able to better recognize "legacy businesses" in Edmonton like Plaza Bowling, and the building it's located in. Many city's have recognition programs for long-running local businesses like this that have contributed (and still are) to the urban fabric, culture, economy and history of a city. We need to better celebrate our history through those still making it. Plaza Bowling is a great example of where to start.
