Canada’s Most Significant Waterfront Community
An Olympic Legacy
In 2010, the City of Richmond hosted the Olympic Long Track Speed Skating event at the Richmond Olympic Oval, a 33,650 square-metre, state-of-the-art facility adjacent to River Green. After the closing ceremonies, The Oval has become BC’s premiere sports and wellness facility – a leading centre for fitness, diagnostics, rehabilitation and healing. It is right on River Green’s doorstep, with a pedestrian “greenway” extending through the neighbourhood to the facility’s front door.
