Pensacola’s Vickery Neighborhood Resource Center is set to reopen this month after being shuttered for more than a year.

City officials announced Friday that the center will reopen on Monday, November 16 at 9:00 a.m. The neighborhood resource center has been closed since April 2014 due to extensive damage from record-breaking flooding.

Staff are putting the finishing touches on the facility over the next week to ensure that it is ready to open and resume normal operation. “We’re ready to get reopened and start seeing our friends in the area neighborhoods and we hope to see some new faces too,” said Thomas Brame, Recreation Area Manager for Parks and Recreation.

Starting November 16, the public can enroll or drop in for a fitness class, sign up for the youth basketball league, use the weight room, find out about facility rentals, and more. An open house is currently being planned for some time in December.

“We have new instructors and classes as well as some returning favorites already on the schedule,” said Brame. A full schedule of classes is available online at playpensacola.com.

The Vickrey Resource Center is located at 2130 Summit Boulevard in the Roger Scott Athletic Complex. To reach the resource center by phone, call 850-912-4056.
