Best Ground Hockey Spot

By: Rupe Power

We played ground hockey on many streets, at ‘The West’ when the bus garage was there, at schools, in driveways and just about anywhere we could.

We all had our favorite spot to play though. I liked playing at the top of Melrose in front of Jackie Langlois place.

It’s a shame that you don’t see as many ground hockey games anymore. Once in awhile I see kids playing and it brings back fond memories. We use to have big games with spares. Our ground hockey sticks got so thin and some were used so much they were worn down to a sharp point.

Got a favorite ground hockey spot. Let me know below.
