Background Discussion

G.T. Bray Park is located on the western side of the County, within the city limits of Bradenton, spanning from 51st to 59th Streets West.  The Parks and Natural Resources Department's administrative offices are located at the G.T. Bray Recreation Center which offers daily use guest passes and monthly recreation memberships to the complex's Fitness Center, Racquet Center, Aquatic Center, and gymnasium.  G.T. Bray Park is also the largest district park in the county, offering many outdoor recreational activities including pavilions, playgrounds, soccer, football, baseball, and softball fields/complexes.

G.T. Bray Park has several concessions operated by leagues at the soccer, football, and baseball facilities.  Currently, the concession at the Aquatic Center and the Softball Complex are not operating.

Staff recommends that a small dollar concession Request for Proposal (RFP) be developed from the attached Proposed Scope of Services so an agreement can be issued to a qualified vendor(s) and this service can begin to be offered at the G.T. Bray Aquatic Center and the Softball Complex.

Please see attached Proposed Scope of Services.
