Formerly known as “Bowlwood Recreation,” this establishment dates back to the 1940s and has remained family-owned since. The grand opening, attended by bowling legend Buddy Bomar, took place on April 17th, 1948, with the first ball thrown by Mayor Walter Kehoe.

Today, Wooddale Bowl is owned and operated by couple Mike and Karen Melone. While Mike takes care of the business end, Karen provides a “woman’s touch” to the place that adds a fresh perspective for their customers. Their motto, “Big enough to accommodate your needs, but small enough to do it right,” is reflected by their clean facility and friendly staff. This eight-lane bowling alley has been a perfect choice for families, parties, and bowling leagues alike.

Despite hosting various bowling leagues, including men’s, women’s, mix, and youth leagues, Wood Dale Bowl still manages to leave a few lanes open daily for the casual bowler. They also host special events that cater to your needs and cosmic bowling on Saturday nights.

Next time you plan a family outing or are looking for restaurants with games, choose Wood Dale Bowl. You can call ahead to make arrangements for parties, events or ask about the bowling leagues that call it home. See why this family-owned business has been open since 1948 and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. They even manage to keep a few lanes open for casual bowlers out there looking to knock over a few pins. Head to Wood Dale Bowl for a winning experience!
