The Grand Falls Stadium was constructed in 1947/48 and is the oldest regulation size artificial ice surface in Newfoundland. Upon completion it was hailed as the best arena east of Montreal. The stadium was originally opened on November 22nd, 1948 and re-named the Joe Byrne Memorial Stadium on March 22, 1991.

In August 2003 renovation work commenced on the 4.2 million dollar project. The project was completed in June 2004 and the first official event was the 2004 Exploits Valley High School Graduation Ceremonies, which was held on June 25th, 2004.

The new Joe Byrne Memorial Stadium is a state of the art modern facility. The building was completely dismantled inside and rebuilt. The building features individual extra wide heated seating, a large hospitality room, and a large modern canteen and Coffee Shop. User groups now have new dressing rooms, new scoreclock and timeclocks, and totally new rink boards and glass. It also features a new modern ice plant featuring an infrared sensor system, a large comfortable lobby, larger storage rooms, and new washrooms. The stadium also has an improved ventilation and dehumidification system and features a state of the art Electric Olympia Ice Machine.

The Joe Byrne Memorial Stadium is located on Jones Street, adjacent to High Street in the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor and is used to host Trade Shows, Conferences, Sporting Events and Special Events.
