Fulton County’s only bowling alley to open in Swanton

Posted: Updated:
SWANTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A brand new bowling alley, banquet hall and bar are set to open in Swanton soon.

It will still be called the Swanton Sports Center, but the inside will be brand new. It's been closed and abandoned for more than a year, but now major renovations are happening and new owners are trying to bring new life to the center.

The building will have 20 lanes for bowling, an arcade, a bar and grill, and a banquet hall. The managers say it will be the only bowling alley in Fulton County, and they think it will have a positive impact on the area.

"It will bring people to town," said Assistant Manager Bill O'Connell. "They're going to bowl, maybe go to the sports bar, but they're going to stop and get gas, maybe run to Kroger, may go to another restaurant in town, so I think the economic impact is going to be significant."

The new center is expected to open within the next few months.
