Bay County Indoor Recreation Center 1 of 4

Located off of US 231 and Transmitter Road, will serve as a primary shelter during and after storm events impacting Bay County Florida. When not in use as a storm shelter, the Rec Center will be used as an amenity for local residents, as well as used to generate incremental sports tourism demand for Panama City and Lynn Haven. Loosely modeled after the Kenyon College Athletic Center in Gambier Ohio, the Rec Center will include athletic courts, running track, aquatic center, locker rooms, medical facilities, commercial kitchen, small conference rooms and training rooms. The land surrounding the Rec Center will be converted into a public park to assist with storm water mitigation and natural filtration from the nearby water treatment plant and will provide walking and biking paths and other amenities.
