A place for the community to gather

Every city needs a gathering space, and the Block 9 civic plaza is designed to be just that. Inspired by Main Street Square in Rapid City, South Dakota, the plaza will be heavily programmed by Fargo Park District and includes a band shell for outdoor live performances, interactive water features for kids (and, adults, of course), and will double as a groomed ice skating rink in the winter.
