Richmond Canada is a coastal city in British Columbia. As of 2014, It is part of the metro Vancouver area and the fourth most populated city in the province.

The Oval is now used for provincial, national, and international sporting events. With over 47,500 square feet, it houses two international-sized ice rinks, a basketball court, and a 23,000 square foot fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, an indoor rowing tank, and a 40-foot indoor climbing wall. There’s also a table tennis station, public art display, and the BC’s only indoor track.
