The sheer size of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park combined with the breadth of facilities that it has brought to East London is on a scale not seen before. The 100ha Park consists of two distinctively different areas, with the new Waterden Road providing a route through the Park and access to Westfield Stratford City.
The North Park extends the 26 mile long green corridor of the Lee Valley Regional Park and provides landscapes rich in biodiversity with sculpted landforms, tree lined avenues, rivers and ponds and naturalised green spaces. In addition, the North Park offers facilities such as the Timber Lodge with Unity Kitchen Café and Tumbling Bay Playground, Copper Box in addition to the Lee Valley VeloPark and Hockey and Tennis Centre.
The South Park is located within the branches of the River Lea and links four spectacular attractions in the immediate vicinity: the 114m tall ArcelorMittal Orbit, Aquatics Centre, Olympic Stadium and the London 2012 Gardens. The South Park is a lively, public landscape which hosts numerous activities, events and attractions, making it a destination for locals, Londoners and tourists.
The Park’s stunning venues and open spaces sit alongside thousands of new homes designed to suit all needs, well served with new schools and businesses to create vibrant communities.
