Everything you need to know about Canadian places named after our sports stars.

In Canada, sports aren’t just entertainment; they’re literally part of the landscape. We’ve named everything from parks and streets to schools and stadiums after some of our favourite pro athletes and sports figures past and present.

Wayne Gretzky Drive, Mike Weir Park, Roberto Luongo Arena, the Cindy Klassen Centre, Justin Morneau Field — Canadian Sports Sites for Kids is your entertaining, map-filled guidebook to hundreds of these special locations. The fast-paced stories, maps, and lists highlight everything you need to know about Canada’s sports geography.

Plus, explore other little-known sites of interest, such as:

• The Canadian city that named a park after an arm-wrestling promoter

• The Ontario town that honoured a hockey fan with a place name

• The Prince Edward Island village where the biggest street is named for the writer of "The Hockey Song"

• The whereabouts of Canada’s only street named for a boxing champ
