  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Bowling Green Hotspots Series

We have had humid, hot 80-degree weather this past week. Staying cool can be a breeze if you know the right places to be in Bowling Green this summer. Here are some local hotspots where you can cool off when the temperature gets too high.

Lola’s Frozen Yogurt is the perfect place for any budget. You get to be your own culinary artisan when you step into this locally owned yogurt shop. The store features 15 all-natural flavors and you get to choose exactly how much of each flavor you want. You pick out whatever size cup you want and then fill it with whatever flavors your heart desires. Mixing is encouraged. Watermelon swirled with pomegranate, chocolate goodness mixed with chocolate chip cookie dough and salted caramel vanilla are just the beginnings of the many delicious creations you can make. The next order of business is toppings and Lola’s offers over 95 to choose from, including fresh fruit, cereal, cookies, brownies, cake and a variety of different candy bars and sauces, to name just a few. You pay 43 cents per ounce. Buying your frozen yogurt this way is great if you want to go light on your wallet. But, if you really want to splurge, fill your cup to the brim and get ready to indulge.

City Pool and Waterpark, located at 520 Conneaut Ave., is a good place to go when you just can’t beat the heat. The pool includes a water slide and diving boards for the more adventurous swimmers. If heights aren’t your thing, you can float around in the lazy river. There is also a lap pool to use for exercise. For the younger crowd, the pool has a splash pad. Swimming can be tiring, but you can refuel by heading to the concession stand located inside the City Pool and Waterpark.

The University Ice Arena is open throughout the summer to help you chill out if you really want to escape the heat. Be prepared; it can get a little cold at the ice rink, so you might want to dress in layers to make sure you stay warm enough. If you don’t know how to skate, the arena offers Learn To Skate sessions. To learn more, go to

If the weather isn’t scorching hot, head out to Simpson Garden Park, located at 1291 Conneaut Ave. This park is the perfect escape from a hectic schedule and has many gardens, including a Japanese Peace Garden, two small ponds and a waterfall. There is a Children’s Discovery Garden where kids can explore and learn about wildlife. If you look close enough in the pond located in this section, you will find fish and possibly a frog or two. Trails lead you throughout the park, making for a good place to get some exercise. However, if you get too hot while enjoying the park, head over to one of the gazebos to get some shade. If you want some quiet time, the Peace Garden is the perfect place for you.
