Spotlight: Surfside Community Center

By: Surfside Jul 03, 2019

The Surfside Community Center is one of Surfside’s brightest hidden gems, housing a lap pool, water slide, a children’s splash pool and various opportunities for activities and classes – there’s something to delight everyone. Usually only open to Surfside residents, we’ll let you in on a little secret – the oceanfront facility is also open to Surfside hotel guests with proof of stay! 

Opened in 2011, The Community Center operates year-round and provides quality programming and activities to all segments of the community with a mission to increase the social, cultural and physical well-being of residents and guests. 

To accomplish this, the Community Center was built with direct community input, resulting in a recreational pool with lap lanes, plunge pool and slide, children’s activity pool, and a Jacuzzi all with lifeguards on duty. There are also locker room facilities, family restrooms, a first aid station and two multipurpose rooms for programs. 

Outside, there is green space for party rentals and community events, and a butterfly garden of wildflowers. When hunger strikes, just step up to Surf N Sides, the onsite snack bar and grill that offers salads, pizza, and popsicles for a late afternoon treat. And all of this is just steps to the beach!  


Community Center Activities  

Working towards its mission, the Community Center hosts numerous programs across all age groups. From special events for holidays to weekly classes, there is always something happening at the Community Center. 

Aquatics Programs

Aquatics at the Community Center is focused on swim lessons (for all ages), a swim team program, and aqua aerobics. Classes are offered throughout the year with a special focus in the summer on swim team and swim lessons for little ones while school is out. 

For active adults, Aqua Zumba, a combination of water aerobics and dance, is offered twice a week. Aqua Zumba blends stretching, dancing and aerobics moves into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that is both cardio-conditioning and body-toning. It is so popular that classes are often filled ahead of time! 


Youth Programs 

Youth programs occur throughout the year with special activities, after-school learning programs, and summer camp. Planned recreational activities designed to enrich the lives of the community include arts and crafts, team sports, themed activities, field trips and much, much more. 


Seniors Programs

Throughout the year the Community Center plans activities for adults 55+ such as Silver Sneakers, a senior’s gym class, bingo nights, and bridge tournaments.
