The property, the largest private development in the province, features two luxury hotels with more than 517 rooms, eight restaurants and lounges, a 30,000-square-foot park and a casino that features 600 slot machines, 74 table games, poker rooms and 11 VIP salons designed for private gaming.

Prior to the grand opening, the Courier had a sneak peak of the property, but photos weren't available until today, Sept. 29. Here's a snapshot of Parq in photos.
