Where people connect and create "a place"
Alive with the voices of young and old, from all corners of the world, Bayside is a place that uniquely represents all of Linda Vista. Long-time residents and those newly arrived speak in many languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Laotian, Hmong, Mixteco, Chinese, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Italian and more, reminding us that Linda Vista continues to be a place of "America becoming." Bayside re-weaves the fabric of relationships in our community, countering the decline of social connectedness by providing a place where people interact in many different ways. As a result, the center is truly a second home for many people. With hundreds of daily visitors, it's a place full of happy activity and fellowship.
And make the place their own
Working in partnership with our visitors ensures the center continually evolves to meet the changing needs and interest of the community. Bayside encourages and empowers the people who use Bayside to take on leadership roles at the center and beyond, becoming teachers, volunteers, and advocates. By creating opportunities for grassroots community groups, the center facilitates engagement in the civic arena, providing a forum where residents come together to address neighborhood issues and concerns.
