The Carlson Center has been an amazing asset to the community by presenting events such as concerts, graduations, and UAF Hockey! The implementation of the Carlson Center 2.0 project has provided access and daily options for community use ranging from a Playzone to indoor soccer to community hockey and more.
In 2020, the Fairbanks North Star Borough conducted a study to assess the community's needs and desires with a focus on both management aspects and possible renovation of the Carlson Center. On July 1st of 2021, the Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation Department took over management of the facility.
