Great Lakes (GLSS) Outdoor Sports Complex

Glss Track 002

Opened in 2022, at a cost of $5.5 million, the Lambton Kent District Schools Board’s first artificial turf multi-sport field, which is surrounded by an eight-lane running track, can be rented for a variety of sports activities, including football, rugby, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, Ultimate Frisbee and track & field meets.

Artificial turf advantages –

  • Begin season earlier in the Spring (April) and play longer into the Fall (November), compared to natural turf playing season.
  • Maintain competitiveness with teams in other areas that train on artificial turf fields.
  • Reduced rain outs and cancelled games due to inclement weather.
  • Better positioned to host major competitions and tournaments.

It is the intent of the Board to make the GLSS Outdoor Sports Complex available, for approved Community Use of Schools rental activities, in a fair, equitable and cost recovery manner, while recognizing that the primary use of the facility is for the delivery of education to its students.
