The Vince J. Whibbs, Sr. Community Maritime Park is a multi-use, public-private park development on Pensacola’s waterfront.

Pensacola Bayfront Stadium

Pensacola Bayfront Stadium is considered one of the most premier facilities in Minor League Baseball and home of the Blue Wahoos. The stadium was designed by Populous (formerly known as HOK Sport), which is renowned for creating many outstanding sports facilities including Major League Baseball, as well as NFL, NBA and NHL among other projects.

With a seating capacity of 5,038, Pensacola Bayfront Stadium consistently hosted large crowds throughout the Blue Wahoos' inaugural season including 40 sellout crowds in the team's 68 home dates in 2012. The club also led the league in attendance, with a total of 328,147 fans coming through the gates, equating to a league-leading average of 4,826.

The multi-use facility was also designed to host a wide range of events besides baseball, including football, as well as concerts and many other possibilities. The stadium also provides one of the best views in sports, with the scenic Pensacola Bay beyond the outfield walls, creating a unique backdrop.

Multi-use stadium

Accommodating over 5,000 people, the stadium is currently home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball team, the AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

Hunter Amphitheater

The Randall K. and Martha A. Hunter Amphitheater overlooks beautiful Pensacola Bay. The amphitheater portion of the park supports a large, covered stage (approximately 50′ x 70′ – see the Promoter’s Package for detailed measurements), a “Back of House” facility that supports two dressing room spaces, and grass seating accommodating up to 5,000.

Festival Grounds

The Community Maritime Park is Pensacola’s newest festival facility. This area offers literally thousands of square feet of event space. The space is laid out with walkways conducive to a large-scale festival. The area supports 10+ electrical pedestals – scattered for easy access, as well as water and sewer hook-ups for food and specialty vendors. This area can also be utilized in conjunction with the amphitheater and/or the exhibition grounds to support multi-activity events or multi-stage music festivals.

Exhibition Grounds

This green space measures just under NFL football field dimensions (approximately 127′ x 430′). That’s enough space for a car show, a boat show, or a myriad of competitive sports fields. The mostly level field does have limited access to electricity and water. And it’s location just west of the Community Maritime Park Stadium makes it very visible from Main Street. This open field offers unlimited event possibilities.
