In case you're not a Winter Sports follower, the Winter Olympics will be held here in Vancouver in February 2010. And because of this, we've been getting some excellent new facilities for the events. Last February, we went to the new Speed Skating Oval with my hubby's family and spent the evening trying out the venue. The following few pages are from that day. The Oval is in the suburb of Richmond, thus the title page.
In the middle of the oval they have a hardwood floor and basketball/ badminton courts set up. This will all be removed for the olympics, but for us it was a great way to entertain the non-skaters (like my 18 month old daughter)
