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 be completed in the Spring of 2024 and Phase II expected in January of 2025. 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.

Situated on 123-acres in the quickly budding area between 52nd Avenue South and 64th Avenue South in South Fargo, the Fargo Parks Sports Center will address a critically unmet community need for indoor recreation facilities to serve Fargo and the surrounding region. Once both phases are complete, the Center will include one full size turf field, an elevated walking track, eight hardwood courts, two sheets of ice, six pickleball courts, multiple community and meeting rooms, an indoor playground, food and beverage services, Sanford Sports Performance facilities and Fargo Park District staff offices.

As a highly impactful community recreation facility, the Fargo Parks Sports Center provides a host of Community Benefits including:

  • Addresses Critical Need - Comprehensive study identified Fargo’s needs for indoor community recreation complex.
  • Community Wellness - Provide community space for a more active and healthier Fargo.
  • Multipurpose - Forward thinking design to accommodate recreation and community activities, classes and events while serving all ages, interests and backgrounds.
  • Accessibility - Provide year-round public access for Fargo residents and visitors for sports and community events.
  • Memorable Destination - State of the art community facility and a regional destination unlike any other of its kind.
  • Economic Driver - This facility will attract visitors from across the Midwest with its capacity to host large tournaments and events, bringing a positive economic impact to local businesses.
