The Bayfront Park Recreation Center is a public recreation facility operated by the Town of Longboat Key, and provides affordable, wholesome recreation for the entire community. This includes leisure and recreational sports, organized sports leagues and activities, educational programs, cultural classes and seminars, social functions, and special events for all ages and interests.

This Gulf-to-Bay parcel was acquired in 2007 as part of the Neighborhood Parklands Acquisition Program (NPP) at a cost of approximately $8 million. In 2016, Sarasota County entered into a project agreement for up to $2 million with the Town of Longboat Key to make construction improvements to the Bayfront Park addition, utilizing a combination of funding sources including NPP, Tourist Development Tax and Surtax III funds.
