The Cornwall Tourism summer Visitor Information Centre is now open.

Located at the entrance to the Cornwall Civic Complex and Lamoureux Park at 100 Water Street East, the new-look Visitor Information Centre was created from a repurposed shipping container and is decorated as a giant suitcase – making it easy for visitors and residents to spot.

The centre will be open 7 days a week from 9 am to 5 pm from July 1st until the end of August. The facility is equipped with visitor guides, maps and other handy information on local events and attractions to assist visitors in making the most of their visit to Cornwall and area.

Souvenirs are also available for purchase ranging from hoodies and hats to stickers, water bottles and more.

“The location allows us to easily connect with people attending special events in the park or at the Civic Complex as well as visiting cyclists who often park at the Civic Complex before embarking on a ride on the Riverside Trail,” said Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Officer with the City of Cornwall. “We have operated from this location for the past few summer seasons and it has proven to be quite beneficial.”

The new visitor centre project was carried out through a grant from the Government of Canada’s Tourism Relief Fund through FedDev Ontario. FedDev Ontario is delivering nearly $120 million of the Tourism Relief Fund across southern Ontario to help tourism-oriented businesses and organizations recover from the pandemic and prepare for future growth.
