Parks If everything goes as Pete Bryan plans, come next fall, Laurel will have its own bowling alley. The Laurel native and professional bowler has purchased the former Food City building on South Central Avenue and started renovations of the 18,000-square foot building in January. He hopes that the Bryan Bowling Center will open in late August, in time for the traditional start of area bowling leagues. The new bowling alley will have 14 10-pin lanes and in a separate room two shorter lanes for duckpinstyle bowling. It will also have a snack bar, a game room stocked with video games and a pro shop. In addition, Bryan plans to apply for a license to serve beer and wine. The Town of Laurel held its General Municipal Election on Thursday, March 26.
