Explore The Quincy Kroc Center
Welcome to The Quincy Kroc Center, a Place for Everyone.
Located on one full city block, the 98,000 square-foot Salvation Army Kroc Center is the only community center of its kind in Quincy. It’s a place where people young and old have opportunities to learn and grow, to build dreams and friendships, and to find hope in a safe, warm and welcoming environment. From first-time swimmers to experienced athletes, the Quincy Kroc Center has something for you and your family.
The 98,000 square-foot Quincy 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 our region. 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 several major components: a center of worship and performance venue, an aquatics center, fitness and recreation center, classrooms, and special event facilities.
Development of The Kroc Center was made possible by a $40 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 $8.6 million locally, representing a total community investment of nearly $50 million. Construction of The Quincy Kroc Center began on November 2, 2009, and the facility opened in September 2011.
