Bayview Senior Center Reopens december 18, 2019


The City of Pensacola Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce that the Bayview Senior Center renovations are complete, and the center will reopen with a limited schedule starting at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.

The senior center renovations included new restrooms to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards, new tile flooring, safety handrails throughout the building, and interior painting.

The Council on Aging Meal site service will be available at Bayview Senior Center again starting Thursday, December 19 11 a.m to 12 p.m,  Monday-Friday. To register, contact the Council on Aging at 850-266-2512 the day prior by noon.

Due to limited parking, after the initial opening on Wednesday, the operating schedule for Bayview Senior Center will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Additional clubs and evening classes will return beginning the first Monday in February and special events and rentals will be phased in after the Bayview Community Center opens and the shared parking lot is completed.

An official ribbon cutting for the senior center will be scheduled for later in January.

The Bayview Senior Resource Center staff strives to maximize the quality of life for adults age 50+ in our community by providing intentional programming that fosters mental, physical, and social well-being in a safe and caring environment.
