Olentangy Park had billiards (pool) for most of its run. The first billiard parlor was added in 1903.[1] In 1909, a Bowling & Pool building was built at the north end of the Midway[2] but six pool tables and two box ball alleys were put up for sale the same year, meaning the building might have only served that purpose for a year.[3]
