The opening of the ROX was celebrated with a pond full of locally-grown cranberries in front of the museum. The museum served as Vancouver 2010's speed skating venue, known at the time as the Richmond Olympic Oval.
The building’s plaza now features a commemoration of the 2010 torch
relay. The names of every community on the Canada-wide route are
embedded in a pathway.
The ROX also features ski jumping, auto racing, sit ski, kayak and bobsleigh sport simulators.
