With all of the new fast food chains opening in the Heights area it would be nice to have bowling and roller skating available. My Heights High teen and her friends complain that there is nothing to do and wished they could go skating instead of having to go to a movie or hang out outside. That would probably help some of the crime and allow for physical activity instead of eating and sitting in a theater.

We do have two ice rinks. I agree, a family-type bowling alley like Freeway Lanes in Solon would be nice. The old bowling alleys at Cedar Center and Severance were kinda dirty and seedy.

Bowling is not the cure to youth crime. Yes, many kids would like bowling, lazer tag and a Dave and Busters in the Heights. But, these attractions will not prevent youth from stealing iPads, joining a gang, etc. Then again, Dave and Busters would be very nice!

No, Emily, bowling doesnt solve anything. The kids stealing iPads and beating kids up for their Jordans are not hanging out at the bowling alley, they are on the street and at places like the Noble Gas USA that sells fruit flavored cigars, "legal highs", blueberry zig-zags and marijuana pipes. Incidentally, I bet you could buy some reefer to put in that pipe from one of the kids that hangs out in the parking lot. Anyway, kids that do behave deserve places like parks, coffee shops, bowling alleys, arcades where they can congregate. Cleveland Heights has effectively removed a lot of those places with their curfew rules.
