Blue Wahoos Stadium

Accommodating over 5,000 people, the stadium is currently home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball team, the AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

Hunter Amphitheater

The Randall K. and Martha A. Hunter Amphitheater overlooks beautiful Pensacola Bay. The amphitheater portion of the park supports a large, covered stage (approximately 50′ x 70′ – see the Promoter’s Package for detailed measurements), a “Back of House” facility that supports two dressing room spaces, and grass seating accommodating up to 5,000.

Festival Grounds

The Community Maritime Park is Pensacola’s newest festival facility. This area offers literally thousands of square feet of event space. The space is laid out with walkways conducive to a large-scale festival. The area supports 10+ electrical pedestals – scattered for easy access, as well as water and sewer hook-ups for food and specialty vendors. This area can also be utilized in conjunction with the amphitheater and/or the exhibition grounds to support multi-activity events or multi-stage music festivals.

Exhibition Grounds

This green space measures just under NFL football field dimensions (approximately 127′ x 430′). That’s enough space for a car show, a boat show, or a myriad of competitive sports fields. The mostly level field does have limited access to electricity and water. And it’s location just west of the Community Maritime Park Stadium makes it very visible from Main Street. This open field offers unlimited event possibilities.

Rotary Centennial Playground

This inclusive playground features unique play structures, a clock tower centerpiece, shade trees and covered picnic area. The playground was designed with no walls or hiding places so you can keep a watchful eye on the kiddos as they play. It also includes a rubberized play surface, courtesy of a $100,000 donation from Impact 100, making it very low-maintenance and fall-friendly. The Rotary Club of Pensacola spearheaded the project in celebration of the organization's 100th anniversary. Donations and sponsorship from individuals, companies and organizations made the construction of this one-of-a-kind playground possible.
