Kinsmen Sports Center

The Kinsmen Field House is part of the Kinsmen Sports Centre – a multi-purpose sport and recreation facility located in EdmontonAlbertaCanada. The land surrounding the facility is called Kinsmen Park, part of Edmonton’s city-long North Saskatchewan River valley parks system. Its namesake is the Kinsmen, a service organization.

The field house was opened on January 3, 1968, and was intended to be the first phase of a multifaceted Kinsmen Village that would eventually include an Olympic-size swimming pool and an indoor/outdoor performing arts theatre. At the time of its creation, it was unique among such facilities in Canada and remains the only such facility in North America which is open to general use.
