The 122,000 square-foot Omaha Kroc Center redefines what a community center is all about. This unprecedented place of gathering and enrichment, houses an array of education, sports, faith, arts and supportive programs never before assembled in the Omaha metro. The programs, as well as the building itself, have been designed to stimulate the mind, body and spirit, to provide hope, and to transform the life of each and every member of the community.
The Kroc Center is comprised of four major components: a center of worship and performance venue, an aquatics center, fitness and recreation center, and special event facilities.
Development of The Kroc Center was made possible by a $60 million combined capital and endowment grant from a bequest to The Salvation Army by the late Mrs. Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc. As a condition to the significant Kroc grant, the community also raised $15 million locally, representing a total community investment of nearly $75 million.
Construction of The Omaha Kroc Center began in May 2007 and the facility celebrated its Grand Opening in January 2010.
