Cawley Memorial Stadium is a 6,000 seat multipurpose stadium in Lowell, Massachusetts. The stadium is primarily used for football, soccer and lacrosse. The stadium is the home field for Lowell High School teams, and the Lowell Nor'easter of the NEFL. During the summer of 2006 the playing field was replaced with Field Turf. The Major League Lacrosse's Boston Cannons used it for a few seasons as their home field. The stadium was constructed in 1937 as a WPA project. The most recent updates were in 1998 when the facility was improved with new visitor bleachers and cosmetic improvements to the home side. In 2006 the grass was replaced with field turf. The City of Lowell has always controlled this facility.
The stadium is also used yearly for the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association State Finals.
The stadium was named after Edward Cawley, a landowner who owned several plots of land near the stadium on which the complex sits.
