The Cornwall Civic Complex is a business/sports facility located in Cornwall, Ontario. The arena inside is called the Ed Lumley Arena, named for Ed Lumley. It was built in 1976 and originally held 4,000 people, but in 2008, the arena had an extra 1000 seats added to make the seating 5000.
History of the Ed Lumley Arena
The Civic Complex has also hosted such concerts as Country legend Charlie Pride, Canadian Rockers, Nickelback, Bryan Adams, Rush, Great Big Sea, Celine Dion, Rita MacNeil, and Barenaked Ladies. Legendary rocker Alice Cooper has performed in October 2006. In May 2008, the Ed Lumley Arena was host to the Royal Bank Cup.
Current and future events at "The Ed"
Currently, the Complex hosts the Cornwall Colts hockey team.
The Restaurant/Bar inside the Complex
The Complex had a restaurant/bar inside, on the South-west side of the building. The first restaurant was called "The Blue Room" during the days of the Royals. It was then changed to "Resto-Bar Jazzy". After Jazzy closed, it was empty for nearly 5 years. In 2005, a new sports bar and grill opened up, called Don Cherry's Sports Bar & Grill, a franchise originally owned by former NHL coach and star of Coach's Corner on Hockey Night in Canada, Don Cherry. In April 2009, Don Cherry's was renamed "On Tap Sports Bar & Grill", which has since closed. The space previously occupied by the restaurants has been converted to office space.
