Wildwood Recreation
The state of the art Byrne Community Center, which was paid for by a combination of grants, bonds, and a $1
million donation from the Byrne Fund for Wildwood, Inc., a special program instituted by the J. Byrne Insurance
Agency to benefit local residents opened in mid October of 2008.  The new community center replaced the aging
Wildwood Rec. on East Rio Grand Avenue, which was no more than a small gym with a concrete floor.  The Byrne
Community Center features a basketball court, fitness room, computer lab, meeting room, dance hall, kitchen
facilities, and will have after school programs for local students as well as social and exercise programs for
seniors, a use which the old Rec. could never accommodate properly.  The center is located on the south side of
Maxwell Field, 401 W. Young’s Avenue.


Mission Statement:  
The Byrne Community Center strives to provide affordable, quality programs meeting the needs of the community.  
We are committed to providing quality recreational services, which are educational, fun and rewarding for all age
groups. The Director of Recreation advises the Recreation Commission and Mayor on all activities that are taking
place and on future recreational programs.


Vision:
The Byrne Community Center offers a variety of adult and youth classes for participants of all abilities.  Program
offerings include passive and active programs, special events, and league activities in a safe and learning
environment.  The recreation department takes responsibility for maintaining and improving the city's recreation
facilities to ensure that the quality programs are offered in quality surroundings.  The Byrne Community Center will
strive to exceed the future demands of growth and change in the community while keeping true to the tradition and
values that havemade the City of Wildwood a good place to live, work and play.


Goals:  
We will establish a network of youth development and family enrichment programsand services that enable youth
to acquire assets to become productive, functionaland fully integrated members of the community.  We will
maintain facilities, buildings and grounds to the highest safety standards and ensure that they are clean, bright and
aesthetically pleasing.  We will enhance the quality of life for all residents by providing physical, social,cultural,
natural, intellectual and passive programming for all ages.  We will have a qualified, dedicated and motivated
staff.  We will operate in a professional manner with an eye on providing quality services and leadership.
