History of Two Rivers Activity Center

The community began to discuss the need for additional recreation space in February of 2008. At that time, Jamestown Public Schools Superintendent, Robert Toso, convened a group of individuals and organizations that shared a desire to work together towards the reality of a community recreation center. Over the course of several meetings the Two Rivers Activity Center Board was created. The founding organizations were Jamestown Public Schools, Jamestown Parks and Recreation, James River Family YMCA, Jamestown Tennis Association, and Jamestown Gymnastics Club. In addition to representatives from these organizations, community members filled three at-large board positions. This board met for several years to assess the community need, interest in moving forward, and to develop a business plan. In late 2014 and early 2015 the board determined that the time was appropriate to move forward with a referendum to secure a 1% city sales tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of Two Rivers Activity Center.

Meet The TRAC Staff:

Amy Walters
TRAC Facility Manager

Amy Walters, TRAC Facility Manager, was born and raised on a farm just outside of Jamestown ND.  She received an undergraduate degree in Athletic Training from the University of Mary and a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science from Boise State University.  After college Amy moved back to Jamestown and has been working in the wellness field ever since.  She is an active member of the Jamestown Rotary and most of her time outside of work is spent cheering on her boys in all of their activities.  Amy has been involved in TRAC since the beginning.  She was part of the planning committee that met for several years prior to the TRAC facility construction.   As a lifelong resident of Jamestown, it was apparent to Amy that Jamestown lacked a facility for all ages to be physically active. She believes that TRAC has the opportunity to make a community wide impact.
