The City of Niceville is hosting an outdoor community event on October 12 at 10:00am to celebrate the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new Recreation Area adjacent to the Niceville Senior Center.
Serving as the foundation of Niceville’s community of adults over 55, the new Senior Center Recreation Area hopes to deliver on the community’s desire to create an outdoor activity space for senior Adults. Started in November 2018, the City had the vision to establish a lively mixed-use, recreation area at the core of Niceville’s City Complex.
The new Recreation Area consists of the courtyard, dedicated to Gary Allen Brown in recognition for his 30+ years of community service to the City of Niceville.
- Brown honorably served in the Air Force for 20 years at Eglin Air Force Base and served for 24 consecutive years as a City of Niceville Council Member. He was known as an accomplished community leader with great integrity, passion, and dedication for preserving the heritage of Niceville.
The Recreation area also has:
- Pickleball courts
- A putting green
- Two gazebos
- Shuffleboard courts
- Restroom facilities
The pickleball courts are open to the public outside of the Senior Center hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“There has been a longstanding vision for the creation of a vibrant Senior Center that can be shared and enjoyed by the senior adults in our community,” said Julie Mooney, Senior Center Manager. “We are so proud to open the Recreation Area where our community can gather and create lasting memories with friends.”
The public is invited to attend the celebration at 201 Campbell Drive. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 12 at 10:00 a.m.
