The civic center is a large pre-War public building, situated in northwest Watoga. The location served as a venue for sports and community events before the war. As automation increased in popularity, facilities reports began to document that high school students were no longer playing sports such as basketball, but instead sending their Handy units to do it for them.
Although this resulted in the facility staying clean, it had the negative impact of decreasing ticket sales by half. The events were reported as unpopular, with no one interested in watching the bots play, unable to tell them apart due to their inability to wear human jerseys.
In response, the facilities employees began to open the doors to other events, such as antique shows, but residents did not bring any items in to be appraised. The oldest piece of furniture that was presented was a television from the year before, the owner of which was surprised to learn that it didn't qualify. The center staff noted that the event was beneficial to the owner of Appalachian Antiques, who sold everything she offered for purchase.
The civic center has a large indoor stadium, with three seating sectors surrounding a wooden floor in the center. The roof is accessible by way of fire escapes on the eastern side of the building or an elevator inside. On the roof, one can examine the mound of collected trash remains of a scorchbeast nest as well as a vertibot.
From the roof, one can also access the walkway and elevator to the monorail bridge and the Watoga Transit Hub. Heading east along the roof will result in a walkway to the adjacent apartment block with another parked vertibot.

- Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide, p. 493: "29. WATOGA CIVIC CENTER
The large green, orange and white structure to the northwest of the city is the Civic Center. Check for the entrance (ground level) and a fire escape to the rooftops on the eastern side of the structure. This leads to the Civic Center rooftop (with an elevator from inside the center you can access), where you can inspect a landed Vertibird and a giant Scorchbeast nest (a huge lump of mud and detritus close to the Vertibird). From the roof, you can also access the walkway and elevator to the monorail bridge and the Watoga Transit Hub. Head east along the roof to reach a walkway to the adjacent apartment block (only the roof here is accessible) with another parked Vertibird. Inside, you can fully explore a large stadium with a wooden floor in the center, surrounded by seating on all sides. You can go up three additional levels, including locked VIP areas and three separate kitchens! There's a wealth of items to gather here, so be sure to learn your exits."
