Welcome

Located in the heart of downtown St. Catharines, Ontario, the Garden City Arena opened in 1938 as a Great Depression make-work project. Since then it has been the hub of community sports, recreation and entertainment.

The future of the Garden City Arena is uncertain. The SOHA is working in collaboration with the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre to preserve part of the arena's history and legacy by collecting arena-related stories, photographs and memorabilia from the community.

These exhibits were created by Brock University students in HIST4F00 – Voices from the Past: Oral History.
