Awards & Recognition





In our Bay View Community Room, on the expansive waterfront lawn,

or underneath the covered deck


An ideal setting for your special wedding, the waterfront Tampa Bay Watch Community Center is perched on the shoreline of Cunningham Key, just before the entrance to Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde, Florida.


The spacious Community Center is located on the second floor of the main building, encapsulating 2,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. Featuring a clean, neutral palate and golden bamboo floors, the interior is primarily made up of one large, open room with wall-to-wall picture windows overlooking the bay. Also available is a prep kitchen and storage room along the back side of the center.


The crowning glory of the community room is its wraparound deck, featuring 1,900 square feet of covered open-air balconies. Protected from the elements and featuring ceiling fans for maximizing air flow, it is open and airy, providing spectacular birds-eye views of Tampa Bay, Fort De Soto, Shell Key, and the Gulf of Mexico.


The room and deck combined can hold up to 150 people. Rates vary according to day, time and event. Contact us to inquire about your wedding or special event!
