The 2016 Olympic Games will see all the gymnastics events – artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and trampoline – held under the same roof in Barra da Tijuca. The competition will unfold at the Rio Olympic Arena, also known as the HSBC Arena, which was built for the 2007 Pan American Games. The facility is Rio's largest indoor arena and was the site of the gymnastics competition at the 2007 Pan Ams and at the Olympic qualification events in April.

The arena is part of the massive Olympic Park built for the Games, featuring more than a dozen venues on a triangle of land jutting out into the water.

In September, the Rio Olympic Arena will be the site of the wheelchair basketball competition at the 2016 Paralympic Games.
