Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Takes Shape

Tweet this page



Just months on from the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games and the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is already beginning to take shape. The London Legacy Development Corporation has started the physical transformation of the site and secured a number of events for when the Park begins to open in July 2013.

The transformation so far of the Olympic site into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a vibrant new part of the city, is unprecedented compared to previous Games.

Nearly all of the temporary facilities provided to support the Games have been removed, including the Riverside Hockey Stadium. Work has also begun to dismantle the Basketball Arena and the Water polo Arena.

Keeping the promise of a legacy after the Olympic Games, sport will be coming back to the Park this summer with the Olympic Stadium set to host the British Athletics London Grand Prix on the anniversary of the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games.

This is in addition to Badminton England hosting the London Grand Prix at the Copper Box in October 2013.

Live Nation, one of the world’s leading live entertainment promoters, is relocating two of its biggest music festivals from the centre of the capital and will be staging summer Stadium concerts from July.
