SUMMARY:

                                          

Bill Gregory Park, located at 150 North W St., Pensacola, Florida is currently undergoing renovations specific to its stormwater infrastructure.  The scope of renovation work includes the addition of new features such as a walking path, benches, and improvements to the baseball fields.  The City has been utilizing this park for many years in its athletic programs and the current work has created a temporary need for an alternate location to host the displaced athletic programs.

 

Through an agreement with Escambia County for the use the county’s Raymond Riddle Park, the City’s Parks and Recreation Department will be able to continue to administer the athletic programs that had been scheduled to take place at Bill Gregory Park.  The one-year term of the agreement for the use of Raymond Riddle Park extends well beyond the anticipated early summer completion date for the construction work.

 

The City agrees to pay all monthly utilities during its use of the property.  Although the City does not seek to make a profit on its athletic activities, any fees that are collected to run the programs will remain exclusive property of the City.
