Investing in a Community Asset


The Woodman's Center is where sports, community, business, and culture intertwine beautifully. This architecturally stunning facility will be thoughtfully designed down to the last detail using community input collected by Friends leaders over the last few years. The facility is set to feature a 1,500-seat main arena with year-round ice, a versatile multi-purpose arena, and extensive convention space. It's the perfect venue for everything from electrifying sports events to engaging trade shows and vital community wellness programs. Picture yourself amid the action, whether playing basketball, enjoying a game of pickleball, or being a spectator at a Janesville Jets game, a team in the North American Hockey League.


But the Woodman's Center offers much more than just sports and fitness. Located next to Uptown Janesville Mall, it is a beacon of endless opportunities and real estate growth, creating a one-stop spot for excitement on Milton Avenue. This center will be ideal for hosting concerts, cultural festivals, charity events, or simply as a place for memorable family outings. More than just a location, the Woodman's Center will serve as a vibrant hub for community life and economic growth, benefiting all, even those who may not visit.
