For many of its residents, one of the of the great blessings of life on Anna Maria Island is the Anna Maria Island Community Center, which has enhanced the lives of the island's residents and families for more than half-a-century. It's much like Anna Maria Island itself. There's not merely "something for everyone," but seemingly unlimited options and choices for sports, recreations, community events, self-improvement classes, and much more. The center offers classes in yoga, aerobics, painting, tai chi, floral arranging, and that's just the beginning. Special programs for children include soccer, dance, martial arts, fishing, and a 10-week summer camp program. There's a baseball field, soccer field, tennis courts, a secure, enclosed children's playground, and a cafè featuring healthy sandwiches and treats.
Still, that's only the start of the wide range of ways that this exceptional community center serves Anna Maria Island. The auditorium/gymnasium can be used for basketball and volleyball, a performing arts venue for live music or drama, or as a banquet room. It's available for rent for private business events or weddings, receptions, reunions, and community events of all kinds. And there's even more. The Anna Maria Island Community Center offers all the state-of-the-art fitness equipment you need, locker rooms, and a Teen Center with computer rooms and other facilities dedicated to the community's youth.
The Anna Maria Island Community Center is entirely family-friendly and handicapped-accessible. There's always plenty of free parking. Please, no pets except for service companion animals.
