It is Richmond Day! My friend and I went to Richmond by car and our first stop was the Richmond Oval (Addy: 6111 River Road, Richmond). We drove but you can also take the sky train from downtown to Lansdown and walk there as well.
今天, 我跟朋友一起跑到列治文! 我朋友開車, 可是搭輕軌到Lansdown站人後走路也可以.
The oval was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics for the speed skating competition but now serves as a fitness center, a sports interactive center, and also has basketball courts, ping pong courts, hockey rinks, a rock climbing center and as sporting event rentals such as gymnastics or karate. 這個建築原本是為了2010冬奧,當速度滑冰比賽. 現在, 這建築變成多用途室内體育場 … 有溜冰場, 籃球場, 乒乓室, 還有健身室, 攀岩, 等特活動.
Our first stop was the Richmond Oval Experience, otherwise known as the ROX. It is on the third floor and has some items from the 2010 Winter Olympics as well as from previous Olympics on loan by athletes and the Olympic Museum. It costs $17 per person and $13 for youths and senior over 60.
進入圓速滑館後, 我們買入場票去The Rox. 大人票$17 以小童$13. 它在三樓, 是一個體育體驗中心, 有2010奧運還有其他運動員的目品.
Then comes the fun stuff … the stimulation! 接下來是最有趣的東西……體驗區!
