Located near the banks for the Fraser River, between the Arthur Laing and Oak Street Bridges, stands the city’s legacy to the 2010 Olympics, the Richmond Olympic Oval. Originally built for the speed skating events, the Oval has been transformed into a multi-use sports facility including 2 full sized hockey rinks, badminton courts, gymnasium, volleyball and basketball courts, indoor paddling centre, indoor soccer fields, running track, sports programs and a wellness centre.
The area surrounding the Oval is the site of a major urban riverfront community incorporating residential, commercial and public amenities along with a park and plaza. The 25 buildings of the River Green development are built on 28 acres along the shores of the Fraser River. The sale of land by the city to the developer included assurances of preservation of public green spaces, maximizing the river views, and updating public accessibility to the area. The luxury condo complex built to incorporate dramatic waterfront and mountain views along a riverside walkway, encompasses the distinctively beautiful Richmond Olympic Oval.
More homes near and around the Richmond Olympic Oval are in the planning stages and will transform this once vacant city land into a sophisticated home for discerning homeowners desiring water and mountain views, convenience and amenities.Olympic Oval
