What we have to offer

Community Lanes has been a part of several generations of families in the Minster and surrounding communities since it opened its doors on November 28, 1959.

The facility has 18 new synthetic surfaced lanes using the Brunswick Pro Lanes system. Other great updates include the Brunswick Light Worx System, Updated Stereo and PA system, new scoring software and a black light system. On April 18th, 2019 the sale to the new owners was completed.
