A sea of Tricolour ponchos made for a festive atmosphere Saturday as several hundred alumni, staff, faculty, Queen's friends and their families,witnessed the long-awaited rededication of Frank Tindall Field.
Named for legendary Queen's coach Frank Tindall, the state-of-the-art athletics facility will extend the playing season for Queen's and Kingston-community athletes and is a first step toward a new vision for Queen's Athletics.
Principal Tom Williams thanked members of the Tindall family who attended the opening and congratulated all who were involved with the project. The project also helps to address the current parking crunch at the university. A 580-space, two-level garage is located below the field and is set to open later this year.
"The opening of Tindall Field is the first step for Queen's Athletics in moving towards our vision of becoming the best in Canada," say Leslie Dal Cin, Director of Athletics and Recreation. "Along with our new brand and visual identity the opening is part of an historic movement forward."
