Do All Bowling Alleys in Los Angeles County Have Wheelchair Accessibility?

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) provide manual wheelchairs free of charge, and they offer a range of accessibility services at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Bowling alleys that have tire covers can be a great addition to customer service. Founded in 1979, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is the only artist-founded museum in Los Angeles and houses a collection of 7,500 works of contemporary art. People with disabilities can purchase accessible seats if they cannot sit in a straight-backed chair or if their service dogs cannot fit under an inaccessible seat or remain safely lying in the aisle.

The Hollywood Bowl provides fully wheelchair accessible seating in spaces or locations designated as such, and no permanent fixed chair will be provided at these locations. An accessible route is available from the bus delivery point to Box Office Plaza, which includes the Bowl box office, retail outlets, The Bowl Store, and elevators to reach accessible seats. When bowling lanes are available, at least 5 percent, but not less than one, of each type must be on an accessible route. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection of nearly 149,000 objects that illustrate 6000 years of artistic expression around the world.

The Pinz Bowling Center is a popular bowling alley for families looking for a fun, small-group outing, corporate events and Hollywood bachelorette parties. It is also a great pastime for kids, and many bowling stores offer fantastic promotions during summer vacation where kids can play bowling for free every day. One of the most popular attractions in Los Angeles is the Los Angeles Zoo's Botanical Garden & which is home to more than 2200 animals representing more than 270 species, many of them rare or endangered. Winnetka Bowl is the perfect place for those who want to go bowling once in a while or as a weekly event or hold a party.

Based on my initial experiences with the Center for Independent Futures, I have at least one recommendation for a bowling alley that seems to embody the spirit of the ADA, especially when it comes to wheelchairs on bowling alleys.
