The Loxley Civic Center is a multi use facility located inside the Municipal Park. It is elegant enough to hold a wedding, functional enough for all of our senior activities, tough enough to have our children’s summer activities, and wild enough to contain western style Birthday parties. This facility is the center of all cultural activities in Loxley.
The building and initial equipment were donated to the town by the Schmeiding Foundation of Springdale, Arkansas. Mr. Lawrence Schmeiding, CEO Schmeiding Foundation had a seasonal produce sales and distribution company located in Loxley for years. He later relocated to his home state of Arkansas. Mr. Schmeiding felt he needed to give back to the community that he called his summer home. The result was the Loxley Civic Center. The town has used this building in a variety of ways since.
The building houses the senior activity programs that Loxley offers, as well as all of the summer youth activities. After Hurricane Ivan, the center housed FEMA, The Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and many other entities to help in the local recovery after the storm. When Hurricane Katrina hit the area, the American Red Cross set up as a distribution center. Almost any kind of event one can think of can be held here.
