About WRCC

The West River Community Center is a 135,000 square foot center built with plenty of modern amenities and a “western edge” design that blends with the landscape of Southwestern North Dakota. The program areas are designed to achieve not only a visual connection between spaces, but an openness that allows users to feel a sense of community. The facility maximizes the use of natural light by way of large windows. Designed with the philosophy that community recreation centers should entertain, educate and promote health and well-being.

The staff at West River Community Center is ready to make your visit to our facility a memorable and pleasant experience. Open seven days a week, the community center has a friendly and welcoming family atmosphere for all ages.
