About Us

Here's the story about us: Before it was the Platte Valley Community Center, our building served the early Saratoga middle schoolcommunity of Saratoga as an elementary school. It was built in 1928.  Notably, that first school housed both elementary classrooms and a gym complete with a stage.

Some years later it was transformed into Platte Valley High School/ Saratoga Middle School. Finally, close to a century after it was built, the school building was completely remodeled to become  the Platte Valley Community Center.

Because of public interest, the plan was to provide the Platte Valley and Saratoga with a modern community center offering a wide range of activities. A Joint Powers Board was formed. Several committees of local volunteers also helped plan the building. Thus, local citizens, grant opportunities, and private donors all played a part in making this dream a reality.

A Community Center for all of the North Platte Valley

Consequently, The Platte Valley Community Center opened its doors in 2006. Since then, we've been proud to offer the entire Valley community a wide variety of usage options. There are opportunities for performing arts, children's activities and programs of all kinds. We provide space for social gatherings, events, banquets, business seminars, meetings and conventions.  School activities, court and mat sports, fitness training and classes all take place under our roof.
