History in the Making
Since its official opening on January 3, 1968, Edmonton’s Kinsmen Field House has provided unique year-round public facilities for sports and recreational activities for millions of Canadians. Although several American universities had similar structures, the Kinsmen Field House was the first facility of its kind in Canada and the only one in North America available to the general public. Enhanced with the addition of the Kinsmen Aquatic Center in 1978 and the world-class Keltie Berne Fitness Center in 1992, the Field House (now part of the Kinsmen Sports Centre) remains one of the truly outstanding public recreation facilities in the world.
Located in the river valley, close to downtown, the centre is surrounded by walking, cycling, cross-country skiing and in-line skating trails. A pitch and putt golf course is on the south side of the building. So to build that beautiful body for the summer beaches, make sure to drop by the Kinsmen Sports Centre soon.
