The Gatorade Garden City Complex is the main arena facility in St. Catharines, Ontario. It houses two arena pads - the Jack Gatecliff Arena which is home to the Niagara IceDogs, and the smaller Rex Stimers Arena. The original section was constructed in 1938, and was named the Garden City Arena. The facility was later named after local sportswriter Jack Gatecliff after extensive renovations in 1996 that combined the Garden City Arena and Rex Stimers Arena into a single building. The complex was renamed the Gatorade Garden City Complex on September 19, 2007.

The current capacity of the Jack Gatecliff Arena is 3145, including standing room. Only limited seating is available in the Rex Stimers Arena.
