Mankato National Guard Training and Community Center

Mankato, MN | Government + Cultural

Overview

The National Guard's training and community center in Mankato offers a training and operations facility for the Guard, as well as gathering spaces for the community.


Opportunity

The National Guard's facilities in Mankato no longer fulfilled its needs, as they became dated and too small. An opportunity to partner with the City and County provided an option for a new facility.

Solution

When its existing downtown Mankato facilities became obsolete and cramped, the National Guard collaborated with the City of Mankato and Blue Earth County to build a new facility on the Hilltop area of Mankato. Through this partnership, the Guard has a more comprehensive facility to meet the needs of its unit and the greater community. The City and County gained additional recreation and training spaces that are now shared with the National Guard. The new site houses administrative offices, an assembly and drill hall, community gymnasium and recreation space, kitchen, locker rooms, unit storage, arms vault, vehicle maintenance and service area, and a separate vehicle storage building. It is located near a bustling commercial district with healthcare, shopping, lodging, and dining options nearby.
