The City of Pensacola's Mayor Ashton Hayward and District 4 Councilman Larry Johnson invite the community to join them for a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Bayview Resource Center on Monday, May 7th at 11:00 a.m.

Bayview Resource Center will be an exciting new addition to Bayview Park. The facility, which replaces the former community center that was demolished in 2015, will provide more accessible uses and waterfront access for the community to enjoy. The building is designed to be an active and highly social building that also reinforces the importance of Bayou Texar as a natural asset, and supports continued improvements of and around Bayou Texar.

The community center portion of the facility will include a large event space which can be separated into two smaller event spaces, meeting rooms, a catering kitchen, fitness room, and staff offices. A large open lobby welcomes guests to the facility and there are multiple decks and balconies offering sweeping views of the waterfront. There is also space for storage of kayak, SUP, and rowing sculls to provide a home for paddle sports and non-motorized water activities. There will also be indoor and outdoor access to restrooms.

The Bayview Senior Center will remain in its current location adjacent to the new community center and will see relief from program crowding as well as improved access to parking.

“We are very excited for this new resource center at Bayview Park,” said Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward. “My staff and I have worked tirelessly to bring another extraordinary amenity to our community. This new attractive facility will embrace the waterfront and will be something that everyone can enjoy.”
