Winter Activities Director

Sorry have not been able to be on here for a while.  In case you have not heard, I shattered my shoulder playing pickel ball.  Now I have a bionic one.  I need to thank everyone for their prayers, food and help.  I am finally starting to feel better.  In the meantime, our winter Texans have flown back north.  Looking forward to everyone's return in the fall when we will again enjoy many activities.  (Pickel ball is a no for me) 

Hope everyone has a safe trip home, a wonderful summer and will return in the fall.  See you all soon.

We welcome back our “Queen of Fun,” winter activities director, Sharon Heien, for another fun-filled winter season! Sharon has been an activities director at other parks, and has put together some amazing ideas to keep us busy 7 days a week here at Bay View! With Sharon at the helm we’ve had computerized bowling, bean-bag baseball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, yoga, pilates, exercise classes, as well as bingo, card bingo, and other group games—getting as many people involved as possible. And, along with her husband, she’s taught dancing, too! There’s something for everyone, every day! In addition to these in-house activities, Sharon has also snagged some wonderful guest performers and organized off-site activities to keep us entertained. Fun times!

Winter Texans are always having fun at Bay View. Past park activities have included: cowboy hat night, craft sales (warm cinnamon rolls & coffee available), table games & bingo, quality guest entertainers, a volunteer in-house band, Wii bowling, pool tables, special interest groups and more!

Outdoor activities include: shuffleboard on a court refurbished by park volunteers, horseshoes, and even a couple pitch and putt golf holes. Beautiful walks or bike rides in a park-like setting with trees, flowers, and several ponds that attract beautiful birds.

Food always seems to be a Bay View priority with a chili cook-off, holiday parties and dinners, potlucks, pool parties. Affordable Wednesday night dinners and Friday hamburger and hot dog lunches are available at the Family Clubhouse.

Rockport is a vibrant community with holiday activities including a Christmas symphony, an afternoon and evening Tropical Christmas celebration, monthly market days with vendors from all over the state. Fishing, boating, kite flying and beach outings are popular area activities.

The Rockport area enjoys beautiful birding and wildlife viewing areas and if your stay includes the month of April make sure you visit Sandfest in Port Aransas where world-class artists compete with their magnificent beach sand sculptures.

Bay View guests have taken advantage of park sponsored trips to San Antonio, Goliad, Victoria, Mexico, Coushatta Casino and other point of interest. Bay View is a great place to spend the winter season to have fun and make new friends.
