Richmond Olympic Oval

  • Events
The Richmond Oval is a 512,000 square foot, multi-use facility, with capacity for 8,000 spectators.  Its permanent features include community wellness services and programming, sports medicine and sciences, a major fitness centre, community activity areas and restaurant and retail space.  The area surrounding the Oval will be the site of a major waterfront neighbourhood incorporating a park and a plaza, with residential, commercial and public amenities.  The Richmond Oval project will evolve in three stages:  Pre-Games, Games-Time, and Legacy (Post-Games).  Prior to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Oval will be open to the public for recreational activities, while the ice is tested for Olympic readiness, and athletes, officials and staff prepare for the Games.  The Oval will be one of the busiest venues during the Olympics and will host 12 Long Distance Speed Skating medal events. Upon conclusion of the Games, the Oval will begin its legacy as an important permanent fixture serving the local, national and international community as a one-of-a-kind centre for health, wellness, and sports excellence.
