The Toyota Center is an (approximately 7,715-seat) multi-purpose arena in Kennewick, Washington, USA.

The arena opened in 1988 as the Tri-Cities Coliseum (the name was changed in 2004 to the Three Rivers Coliseum to match the Three Rivers Convention Center, which was built next door in the same year). In early October 2005, a deal was reached between the city of Kennewick, Washington and Toyota, Toyota would pay $2 million over ten years for naming rights. The city of Kennewick uses that money to do much needed improvements and upgrades to the facility. A smaller facility next door, built by the City of Kennewick in 1998, was named the Toyota Arena as well.

The Toyota Center is home to the Western Hockey League's Tri-City Americans hockey team and the Tri-Cities Fever of the Indoor Football League, (the arena during Fever games is known as 'Gesa Field at the Toyota Center'), as well as the former home of the Tri-City Chinook of the Continental Basketball Association.
