Kiwanis Field

Please Note: As the City works to slow the spread of COVID-19 there are restrictions on some outdoor spaces including sports fields. While sports fields are open for passive use such as walking or throwing a frisbee with members of one's own household, organized sports and gatherings over five are strictly prohibited.

Located at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre

Please note: The City of St. Catharines is closing several City facilities and modifying some services until early April to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Sports fields, including Kiwanis Field, are closed as of Friday, March 13 until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 webpage.


Thanks to its artificial turf, fewer games at Kiwanis Field have to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

Field Hotline is updated daily with field closures- 905.688.5601 ext.1534

It also means the field can be used from mid-April to mid-November - longer than any other sports field in the city.

  • Large enough to accommodate regulation CFL games, FIFA soccer games and field lacrosse
  • Exterior lighting to accommodate night games.
  • Bleachers can accommodate 800 spectators
  • Accessible change rooms, showers and washrooms

 FUN FACT: City crews groom the artificial turf with a large magnet to collect helmet clips and other metal debris.

Kiwanis Field - Artificial Turf Field Rules

The turf does not regenerate like natural grass, so anything left on the turf remains there, creating health and safety hazards in addition to the general degradation of the turf. 

To preserve the quality of our artificial turf and provide a healthy, safe and clean environment, the following activities or items are NOT permitted on the field:

  • Dogs and other animals (except service animals)
  • Bicycles, skateboards, in-line skates
  • Motorized vehicles
  • Chairs or benches (may puncture the turf or cause damage)

  • Alcoholic beverages
