Palisades Bowl - Bowling Alley - Euclid

Palisade's (Freeway Lane of Euclid) closed just a couple of months after I moved to Euclid. I never had a chance to go there while it was open.

Confession: My highest bowling score ever was 81.

Palisades' grand opening in August 1962

The bowling alley opened with:
  • 32 Brunswick Gold Crown lanes
  • Fully equipped billiard room
  • Air conditioned lounge and bar
  • Snack bar
  • Locker room
  • Nursery with child care
  • Meeting room

Special guests for the grand opening included:
  •  Don Ellis
  • Stevie Balog
  • Marion Ladewig
  • Howie Neiberding
  • Willie Mosconi

They were also a thorn in the side of a competitor, Shoregate Bowling Centers. Brunswick was sued by the aforementioned alley and 2 others, by selling similar equipment to the new Palisade's Bowl.

Somewhere along the way, they tacked on "Freeway Lanes"

When did the bowling alley close? February 1, 2004. I got some pictures on a frigid January day, 2006.

What's there now?

A church!

...of course!
