JRA and Cortina Productions Team Up on Design of TheZone

Located within the Northwest Arena in Jamestown, New York, TheZone will be an interactive play space for children ages 2 through 12 that builds upon the Arena’s 20 years of successful stewardship of youth recreation and athletics.

Designed by Jack Rouse Associates and Cortina Productions, both world-renowned firms who design displays for museum, sport, and entertainment venues including the National Comedy Center, TheZone will be colorful, fun, and inviting, from the LED marquee that welcomes you in, to the five zones of diverse, dynamic activities inside.

TheZone features a fully ADA-compliant design! All kids can expect to experience play in a way meaningful to them, from designing a sports uniform to testing their speed against real and simulated rivals, climbing, throwing balls, jumping, and simply having fun creating their own play in an enriching, age-appropriate space.

With support from individuals, corporations, foundations, and public resources, TheZone expects to be welcoming guests during summer 2022. For more information, visit https://funatthezone.org
