Kingston stadium opened in 1952 and has a seating capacity 15,000 at a cost of roughly $700,000 dollars. It exists in an area of Cedar Rapids that was originally known as Kingston.
After serving the community well in it's early years it was expanded in 1958 to include locker rooms, office space, press box, and a general storage area. Later an all weather track was added, and improvements were made to the seats and press box.
In the fall of 2007, the field turf at Kingston Stadium was replaced. A new grass playing surface was installed. This RTF fescue type of grass will require less water and has formalized to be more durable than standard blue grass athletic fields.
