Brechin Lanes is Nanaimo's Best Bowling Alley!

Bowling is Canada's top participation sport and Brechin Lanes is dedicated to providing the BEST ENTERTAINMENT VALUE in Nanaimo, BC. Our modern bowling center has kid friendly bumper bowling lanes available too. We also have plenty of lightweight bowling balls and small shoes for kids.

Whether you’re looking just to bowl a couple games by yourself, an outing with friends and family or you want to join a bowling league, Brechin Lanes is the place to be.


Pursuant to the Province of BC Health Orders, group size is limited to 6 patrons, and each group must remain at least 6 feet from other groups.  This also applies to parties of more than 6 people.  For example, if a group of 8 people (or any number greater than 6) wishes to bowl, the group will be separated into two groups, and these two groups must remain at least 6 feet apart at all times.  This is the same rule as in all restaurants in the Province of BC.
