The longtime vision for Fargo’s own destination indoor sporting, event and activity facility will soon be realized with Phase I of the Fargo Parks Sports Center slated to open to the public on June 3, 2024. This multipurpose community recreation facility will accommodate nearly any indoor sport, activity, tournament or special event and will span more than 390,000 square feet of indoor space.

Located at 6100 38th St. S., Fargo, ND 58104, the Fargo Parks Sports Center will address a critically unmet community need for indoor recreation facilities to serve Fargo and the surrounding region. Phase I of the Sports Center will include one full size turf field, an elevated walking track, four hardwood courts, multiple community and meeting rooms, food and beverage services, Sanford Sports Performance facilities and Fargo Park District staff offices.

While athletes will benefit greatly from the space, the Fargo Parks Sports Center is expected to be a destination facility for all recreational and community activities. In addition to standard athletic events, the forward-thinking design will cater to a wide range of activities including art, drama, educational classes, e-sports, horseshoes, drone racing and more.

The impact of the Fargo Parks Sports Center goes far beyond sports and recreation. The space will serve more than 20,000 local children, provide gathering space for 20-plus local community organizations and attract more than 1,000,000 local and regional visitors annually. A facility of this magnitude will have an incredible economic impact on the community by generating revenue, boosting local business, creating jobs and increasing the overall quality of life for residents of Fargo and the surrounding communities.

With approximately 40 plus tournaments scheduled annually, the Fargo Parks Sports Center will draw tens of thousands of visitors from outside the community year after year. A comprehensive study done in collaboration with the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor Bureau estimates the Sports Center will generate more than $6.6 million in direct visitor spending through accommodations, dining, shopping and entertainment, injecting a significant amount of revenue into the local economy.
