The Olympic Park in London is amazing. It’s modern and yet so green and full of wild flowers. It’s very British and will be a great legacy for the future generations.
The arena is the host to all the Hockey matches.
Olympic Hockey Centre
Designed by architect Stanton Williams and engineered by Arup, the venue is another to have a legacy afer the Olympics 2012. The centre will host international hockey competitions as well as community events.
London Olympic Velodrome
The Velodrome was the first Olympic venue completed by the Olympic Delivery Authority. After the Games, the venue will be used by elite athletes, local and wider communities.
The 9m tall ‘RUN’ sign is the largest standalone artwork in the Olympic park.

Gloriana at the Olympic Park
The Olympic flame has been brought to the Olympic Park down the Thames on the Royal Barge Gloriana after the long journey of the Torch Relay.
London 2012 Water Polo Arena
One of the last venues built at The Olympic Park. It’s a 5000-seater temporary arena.
Can you see the word ‘STREET’ formed from the dripping water underneath the bridge?
Zaha Hadid’s landmark 2012 venue – Aquatic Centre
When the centre takes on its legacy role as a facility for local clubs and community swimming the seating in the venue will be removed.
At 115 metres high the orbit is the tallest art structure in Britain.
London Olympic Stadium
The heart of the action.
Lovely view with the Basketball Arena in the background. The Basketball Arena is a temporary venue that will be taken down after the games and used again elsewhere. I think the British should pay more attention to Basketball as their team is pretty good.
