Swenson Park Update:

Swenson Park located at 1076 Circle Lane in Gulf Breeze will soon undergo renovation. To prepare, some of the playground equipment has been removed to be refurbished. The renovations will include a new all-inclusive playground, pavilions, ADA interconnecting sidewalks, a fitness area and improvements to the basketball court and tennis courts.

Once construction begins, the project is expected to be completed in six to nine months pending any material or weather delays. These improvements will be funded by a Florida Recreation Development Assistant Program (FRDAP) grant, LOST and District 5 recreation funds.

Important Notice - Surplus Property:

In accordance with s. 274.05, Fla. Stat., the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners has classified certain playground property as surplus property and has directed staff that such property may be donated to a private nonprofit agency. Any interested nonprofit agency will need to notify the Facilities Manager at (850) 983–1940 and provide necessary proof of nonprofit status as well as enter into an Agreement with the County to indemnify and hold the County harmless as it relates to the property.  The private nonprofit agency will also be responsible for any relocation and costs related to the property.
