Building Blocks: River Park Place – 4 of 4


This sponsored feature takes an intimate look at real estate projects in Greater Vancouver, bringing you stories about the developers, the neighbourhoods and the homes themselves.

One of the major draws of the River Park Place development in Richmond is its proximity to the city’s natural beauty. Just minutes away from the riverfront and the green spaces of Minoru Park and the Garden City Lands, it’s a prime location for anyone who wants to stay connected with the great outdoors.

That green tradition is echoed throughout the development itself. While its state-of-the-art environmental systems are energy efficient and maximize the benefits of the natural surroundings, the most noticeable example of this effort to mirror Richmond’s lush and fertile landscape is the development’s Rooftop Palace Courtyard.

While it may be out-of-sight from street level, the third-story rooftop courtyard is one of the jewels of River Park Place. The stunning views of the Fraser River, North Shore mountains and vibrant Richmond cityscape might initially capture your attention, but it’s the numerous other amenities that will undoubtedly keep residents coming back time and time again.

The building already offers an indoor Banquet Room but if you’d rather take advantage of the fresh air and sunshine, then the outdoor grill and dining area is ideal for hosting. After the meal, why not continue your visit and gather around the open-air firepit lounge. It’s the perfect place to entertain kids with tales and stories – or, if you’d prefer to just visit with friends, then the nearby play area can keep the children occupied.

At the heart of the courtyard is the Tai Chi pavilion, offering a peaceful and tranquil setting for those who take part in the ancient tradition. The community greenways that border the pavilion feature garden benches for when you want a moment to sit and relax, and a space to play bocce or badminton if you’re seeking healthy competition.

The landscaped seasonal gardens are maintained year round; for those residents who also have green thumbs, they better roll up their sleeves – the community gardening plots provide that chance to cultivate and connect with the earth.

And if you’re looking to stay connected with the outside world, the Rooftop Palace Courtyard offers a hi-speed WiFi hotspot, as do all the other common areas within River Park Place.
