The Forest County Potawatomi Community Center is a state-of-the-art facility located in the far Northwoods of Wisconsin. This 110,000 square foot center serves as a hub for local cultural education, recreation, athletic training, wellness and social events. The design of the facility was inspired by the community's strong cultural heritage, and the floorplan resembles an eagle in flight, which is the FCP's sacred symbol.
The community center was designed with the input of the FCP community and is a testament to their vision. The facility boasts a range of amenities, including a dual-use pool complete with spa and recreation area, a fitness center, climbing wall, 20,000 square foot wood court gymnasium, and a 20,000 square foot field house with an elevated 110-yard jogging track above. The center will be used by the FCP community for years to come, providing them with a place to gather, exercise, and learn about their cultural heritage.
Wells manufactured and erected the exterior precast wall panels with a unique Graphic Concrete™ imprinted design, which simulates feathers to continue the theme of the symbolic eagle. This stunning effect adds to the overall beauty of the facility, and is a testament to the care and attention to detail that went into the design and construction of the community center.
The Forest County Potawatomi Community Center is not just a building, it is a symbol of the FCP community's strength and resilience. The facility was built to respect the culture and history of the FCP people, and will serve as a gathering place for generations to come.
