Parq Vancouver is a new land-based casino that will be opening in Vancouver. This development will be the biggest casino in Western Canada. The estimated cost of the construction is $700 million. It is located next to the BC Place. It is scheduled to open on 29 September 2017.
Across the street from Parq Vancouver is the Edgewater Casino which will be closed once the launch of this luxurious venue opens. Parq will be using the Edgewater casino gaming license. There are two entrances that visitors can use to access the resort. The main entrance is on Smithe Street, and the other is on the second level of the BC Place Gate G.
Parq Vancouver Casino Features
The casino is 72 000 square feet of space. It will feature 1500 slot machines, 150 gaming table games, 11 lavish private gaming salons and a poker room. In comparison to what Edgewater Casino was offering this is a significant boost.
However, there was a restriction to the expansion of the gaming offerings because some politicians felt that the floor may end up being underutilized. It was then agreed that the Parq Vancouver casino would offer the same gaming as Edgewater casino. Which means that the casino will feature 600 slot machines and 75 gaming table games.
Other Amenities at the Resort
Parq Vancouver will be host to two hotels by J.W. Marriott and Douglas. Combined, the W. Marriott and Douglas hotels will have a total of 517 rooms, a meeting and conference venue, eight restaurants, a spa with fitness centre, and the biggest ballroom. J.W. Marriott had started accepting bookings for its hotel through their website since the summer.
The venue will also feature an open green space that hosts 200 pine trees. This space will be known as The Park which will be 30 000 square feet.
