Next to the existing Curling Centre and Gangneung Stadium three new permanent stadiums have been built for ice hockey, speed skating, short track speed skating and figure skating. Together, these venues constitute Gangneung Olympic Park.

During the Olympic Games, a number of temporary facilities and pavilions will be placed for the visitors, including a megastore, restaurants and several sponsor pavilions. Images of sports events will be alternated with cultural activities on the live site.
