Si Miller Arena, formerly known as Water Street Arena, is an indoor arena located at 229 Water Street East in Cornwall, Ontario. It was built in 1936 and hosted the Cornwall Royals between 1969 and 1976, during part of their time in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, before they moved into the Cornwall Civic Complex. The arena was renamed in honour of Si Miller, the City of Cornwall's Director of Parks and Recreation from 1963 until his retirement on December 31, 1994. The Arena features a 185' x 85' ice surface and a seating capacity of 700 people.

There are also many lacrosse, and minor league games that take place there including those of the Cornwall Bulldogs.

With the Benson Centre due to open in April 2011 the Si Miller Arena is now closed and will be demolished.
