JLG Architects is working with the City of Watford City to develop the design for their pioneering Events Center. The glass enclosed Commons will provide a gateway to the community and the connection between the facility activities.

The Events Center will provide facilities for community recreation, theatre and concerts as well as a multitude of convention center resources.

Recreation facilities include two ice sheets for hockey, a multi-purpose fieldhouse for basketball, volleyball and baseball with indoor turf for off season practice. The gymnastics club will have a new home within building providing opportunities for growth within the community. The swimming pool area will include a leisure pool with slide, offering year round water recreation; a six (6) lane competition pool will allow for planned growth.

Support facilities for the swimming pool area include a party room, family locker rooms and standard locker room facilities. The main arena will have seating for up to 3,200 spectators depending on the event and can be modified for theatre and concert events up to 3,000. The convention hall will allow for a variety of meeting activities, providing spaces for meetings from 25 to 450 people as well as catering and service functions.
