It seems like every kid in Matthews play Little League baseball and much of that action takes place here at Arthur Goodman. They recently put a stoplight at the entrance to the parking lot which makes accessing the park much easier.
Directions: From downtown, go south on Trade, pass by Fullwood and park is on the right.
Bowling is popular in Matthews and this is probably the best bowling alley in greater Charlotte. Sure, it tends to get overrun by teenagers sometimes, but all in all, it's a good time.
Address: 11210 Brigmon Lane
Directions: off of Old Hwy. 51 near Hwy. 74 (Independence Blvd.)
