The Memorial Civic Centre is a multi-sport recreation and conference facility in Campbellton, New Brunswick. The Memorial Civic Centre opened in downtown Campbellton on the bank of the Restigouche River in 1992. It was built to replace the Memorial Gardens which was destroyed by a fire in 1990. The Memorial Gardens were located on Arran St.

The complex is equipped to accommodate sporting events, entertainment, commercial functions and trade shows on a local, regional, provincial or national basis. The Memorial Civic Center is designed to host Olympic competitions, provide training facilities for Canada's national teams and promote recreational and sporting opportunities for all age groups.
