The Kingston Memorial Centre (originally the Kingston Community War Memorial Arena) is a 3,300-seat multi-purpose arena in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It was built in 1950. The Memorial Centre has a large ice pad, outdoor pool, softball diamonds and a cinder track, and was the home to the Kingston Frontenacs ice hockey team from 1973-2008. Just east of the arena is the International Hockey Hall of Fame. The Kingston Memorial Centre hosts the annual Kingston Fall Fair.
In May 2006, Kingston city council announced that they would be building a new downtown arena (named the K-Rock Centre in 2008). The Frontenacs played their final game at the Memorial Centre on February 15, 2008, as they defeated the London Knights 6-4. The last goal in Memorial Centre OHL history was scored by #14 Kyle Paige of the Kingston Frontenacs.
Starting in 2008, the Memorial Centre is the permanent home of the Queen's Golden Gaels hockey teams.
