Rosedale Field was a grandstand stadium located in Rosedale Park in Rosedale, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It could hold 4,000 for seating and upwards of 10,000 standing. It was home to the Toronto Argonauts from 1874-1897, and again from 1908-1915. It hosted the Canadian Dominion Football Championship game in 1892, 1894, 1896, 1900, 1905 and 1908. It is most famously known for hosting the first ever Grey Cup game in 1909 when almost 4,000 fans witnessed the University of Toronto Varsity Blues defeat Toronto Parkdale by a score of 26-6.[1]

The 3,400 seat stadium and field belong to the Rosedale Golf Club. The grandstand is no longer there, however the field is still there and it is used for soccer.

The current field is part of Rosedale Park, owned by the City of Toronto. In the northwest corner is the home to the Rosedale Tennis Club and outdoor hockey rink. In the northeast a baseball field and a hockey rink. Mooredale House uses the park for a soccer league and baseball league as well a hockey league.

The field is also home to the annual spring park party, Mayfair. The event typically consists of rides, games, flea market and other such carnival-type activities. The event is traditionally on the first Saturday in May. The event is run and funded by Mooredale House. Celebrations surrounding the 100th Grey Cup in 2012 began with the unveiling of a Heritage Toronto commemorative plaque at Rosedale Park.
