The GFL Memorial Gardens, formerly the "Essar Centre", is a 4,928 seat sports and entertainment centre in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. It opened on September 29, 2006, replacing the now demolished Sault Memorial Gardens. The new building was constructed directly next door to the former Memorial Gardens and incorporated its most distinctive feature, the Memorial Tower, into its plans. The block surrounding the arena is called "Memorial Square."

The Garden's primary tenant is the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League.

  • Nice clean place to visit but way too small for events such as monster truck shows
  • Shriner Ceremonial dinner- the Potentate's Feast lived up to its name... great chicken & beef, salad & vegetables & cheesecake too!
  • Awesome game and experience! Got to shoot the puck from centre ice but missed it!!
  • The only other arena aside from John Rhodes who actually use their heat. You can always count on watching your lil MVP in complete comfort and warmth and able to cheer on your all star without worrying about developing gangrene
  • Great game! Good sports venue food!
