View the transformation of Bayview Park into what it is today!

Our Plan

With the input of many residents and community members, Our West Bayfront has been able to prioritize enhancements based on the needs of the community. These enhancements include:

  • Installation of public WiFi
  • Creation of multi-purpose courts
  • Resurfacing basketball courts
  • Creating public art
  • Installation of new playground equipment
  • Purchasing new benches and trash/recycling cans
  • Splash pad installation
  • Enlarging pavilion and adding seating

The proceeds from Erie Gives Day 2018 are allocated towards the transformation of Bayview Park. Thank you to those that donated!
