About Sun City Center
Sun City Center is one of Florida’s most affordable active living senior communities. We offer an exceptional range of recreational and social amenities. It is a safe place where residents feel secure while enjoying the year-round, outdoor life style that Florida offers. Sun City Center is conveniently located with medical, shopping and entertainment resources close at hand. Our community is one of the very few in Florida that allows golf carts to be driven on the roadways.
What’s New In Sun City Center?
Sun City Center’s new visitor Information Center opened for business. Its location is far more convenient than the former site which it had occupied for the past decade. According to our Information Center volunteers, traffic from out-of-town visitors has increased significantly. People who are interested in our community say that they like the fact that tours are conducted by Sun City Center homeowners rather than by professional sales people.
Our new 6800 sq. ft. multi-club building opened to an enthusiastic reception from the community. It houses Sun City Center’s second dance & fitness studio, the Apple/MacIntosh Computer Club and the Digital Photo Club. The Photo club’s facilities include a training room which includes PCs at each desk, a portrait studio and a photo mounting room.
The Samaritan Services has moved into their new 2000 sq. foot building located in our central campus. Relying on volunteer support and contributions, Samaritan Services supplies valuable assistance to Sun City Center residents. Among the most popular of these are transportation to doctor appointments and hospitals including those outside of the immediate area, and a local shuttle service to banks, hairdressers and other daily activities. The Samaritans also support Meals on Wheels evening meal services for residents who are unable to prepare meals for themselves, and Alzheimer’s Respite Care which provides a few days of help for loved ones while their family caregivers can take some time for themselves.
The Sun City Center Fitness Center has been upgraded by replacing 18 older strength machines with brand new Precor equipment. With nearly 8000 square feet of exercise space, our fitness center has 47 cardio machines (including 17 treadmills), 40 strength machines, 6 specialty benches and a comprehensive free weight room. It’s no wonder that our Fitness Center is one of our most popular amenities, and one of the most impressive health-and-fitness facilities in the Tampa Bay area.
This month saw the reopening of our well-used softball field. It has been upgraded to “world class” status, having been re-graded and renovated. It was a collaborative effort supported not only by an outside sports field specialist, but by our resident softball enthusiasts and the Community Association’s Board of Directors. Visitors to Sun City Center have been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the newly improved Sun City Center softball field.
