Centrepiece of the community in Richmond

The Richmond Olympic Oval isn’t just an iconic building from the 2010 Olympic Games, it’s now a centrepiece of the community in Richmond. Constructed to house the speed skating events, the impressive arena spent a lot of time in the spotlight during the Games. The City of Richmond committed $50 million of its share of provincial gaming revenue from River Rock Casino Resort to help fund construction of the Oval and the continued renovations to turn the Olympic legacy into a world-class community and sports centre for Lower Mainland residents of all ages.
