Funding Approved For Southern Recreational Facility In Palm Coast

On August 15, the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) awarded the City of Palm Coast a $739,000 grant from the Flagler County Tourism Development Council (TDC) to aid in funding the construction of the Southern Recreation Facility.
“The community of Palm Coast was designed to be the perfect place to live, offering a balanced blend of the natural environment and recreational amenities. The pillar sports were tennis, golf, and watersports; these three amenities were designed to serve as magnets to attract potential residents and investors.” George A. Libonate Jr. wrote in the Palm Coast Historical Society’s newsletter years ago.
“As a place to explore, connect, and play — the Palm Coast Southern Recreation Facility will be both an asset to residents and a regional destination for tourists,” said James Hirst, City of Palm Coast Parks & Recreation Director. “We are genuinely excited to see these enhancements come to life providing a home to many programs, events, and sports tournaments. The Palm Coast Southern Recreation Center will better assist our community with its ever-growing need for recreation space.”
Below is a map of the recreation facility as planned. Look for more details as they are released in upcoming issues of Palm Coast.
