Built for Community

By: Surfside Jan 26, 2017

Surfside has earned a stellar reputation as a family community and destination, which it supports with a wide range of family-friendly activities at its 7,000 square-foot community center.

The Surfside Community Center and Aquatic Facility is a beachfront property located in the Town of Surfside between Collins Avenue and the beach, across from Surfside Town Hall. Since opening in June of 2011, this multi-purpose facility has quickly become an asset to Surfside and a popular destination for residents and visitors alike.

Designed with community input, the community center serves a wide variety of people, across all ages. Outdoors, the community center includes an Olympic size recreational pool with lap lanes, a plunge pool, slide, and Jacuzzi. The children’s activity pool is equipped with Funtraptions play equipment such as slides, geysers and fountains. There is also public beach access and a snack bar and grill. The facility is also equipped with locker room facilities, family restrooms, and a first aid station.

To the east of the Community Center there is ample green space: perfect for special events and receptions. In the outdoor spaces surrounding the center there are outdoor tables, shade canopies, lounge chairs, and beautiful, lush landscaping.

The community center is also home to the Tourist Bureau and the Parks and Recreation Department.

Public Participation 

The community center hosts an average of 35 public programs per week. Many of the programs are focused on health and wellness. For active adults and seniors, biweekly Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of a workout by integrating the Zumba formula with traditional aqua fitness disciplines. In the afternoons, kid’s soccer is divided by age group, ranging from age 4 to age 12. Once a month, the community center arranges group outings – Sawgrass Mills was a recent adventure – and often celebrates holidays and special occasions with group events.
