River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond to re-open marina as part of upgrades

Local casino and resort celebrates 20th anniversary.
River Rock Casino & Resort is currently owned by Great Canadian Gaming Corp.

New restaurants and a property revamp are among the list of upgrades Richmond's River Rock Casino Resort has planned for the coming year.

This includes the resort re-opening its 130-slip marina, which was temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic five years ago.

River Rock announced on April 26 its plans to dredge the on-site marina later this year as part of a series of upgrades to celebrate the resort's 20th anniversary.

New Gordon Ramsay Steak and KOI restaurants, game machines, upgrades to its theatre and resort layout renovations are also part of the upgrade announcement.

A new lounge and bar and more conference rooms for meetings and events will be added. Navigation and accessibility for guests will also be improved.

"As a pioneer in gaming and hospitality in the market, and one of the very few entertainment resorts in British Columbia, we have always been proud of our resort and its robust amenities," said Wayne Odegard, regional vice president of River Rock Casino Resort.

"These dynamic upgrades will not only provide our discerning guests with expanded choices but allow our special brand of hospitality to shine even brighter."
