THEZONE AT THE NORTHWEST ARENA: CHANGING THE STATE OF PLAY
Twenty years ago, the Northwest Arena opened its doors – and a new chapter in the life of the Chautauqua County region. Hosting hockey games, figure skating competitions, and major concerts, the Northwest Arena has become an asset to the community, a destination for those beyond, and a catalyst for revitalization.
Now, the Northwest Arena is building on this success with TheZone, an indoor sports-themed play space for toddlers through pre-teens occupying the second floor of the Northwest Arena’s expansion. This new project will be a memorable childhood experience that promotes healthier futures, enhances Chautauqua County’s appeal to visitors, fuels Jamestown’s economic momentum, and be a point of community pride. TheZone will bring something wonderful and new to the experience of children who grow up in and visit the region.
The Campaign for TheZone is the key component of an $8.5 million project to expand the Northwest Arena. With $4.5 million already pledged and the physical expansion complete, the Campaign is now seeking $4 million in philanthropic investment for the installation of TheZone’s fixtures and exhibits.
