New Entertainment District at Port Canaveral

Updated: 15 May 2013: 07:33 AM

The Canaveral Port Authority Board of Commissioners has been working on the development in the Cove entertainment district for the new 15,000 square foot Welcome Center which has been under construction and expected to be completed sometime this summer.

New Entertainment District at Port Canaveral

The CEO of Port Canaveral, Stan Payne, indicated the commission fast-tracked the completion of the Cove’s transformation in this tourism and recreation destination that had been discussed since the early 1980s with the hope the economic income brought in from the vision would help Central Florida and particularly Brevard County at a critical time since the end of the Space Shuttle program.

Port Canaveral already shows signs of changing with the construction well underway.

Port Canaveral is Growing

This isn’t the only thing going for the Port, one of the fastest growing in Florida.

In addition they are planning to develop the 80 acres of land in the Cove that will include retail, restaurants, hotels, a convention center, boardwalk, and entertainment areas in an area equivalent to the size of Downtown Disney.

With this new development the Commissioner, Bruce Deardoff, is hoping the new area will attract visitors as well as cruise passengers.

Locals Concerned

Some locals in other areas of the county are concerned the new Cove entertainment district will hurt other hotels and restaurants in the county.

The county is definitely in need of more tourist areas and this should bring more money into the county.

For more information, the port has posted ideas for the Cove at their Facebook page.
