The fields can be lined for lacrosse, soccer and/or field hockey. Goals for each of those sports are available as well. Portable restrooms are on-site for participant and spectator use. Access to the fields can be attained by parking in the Carey Stadium Lot and using the brick pathway to Sisters’ Woods, or by parking on the GA campus, crossing the Wissahickon Creek on foot to the brick pathway that leads to the fields.
