The London 2012 Olympics was one of the most exciting events ever in the history of London, at least in living memory. Now you can return to the park to live the glory of those few weeks in summer 2012.
But that is not all. The park has a little bit of everything. With a fantastic adventure playground, Timber Lodge, the amazing ArcelorMittal Orbit with views of the park and the rest of London.
The park reopened to the public in 2014 and now you too can use the same facilities as the Olympic legends. The London Aquatics Centre especially has great activities for kids including Aqua Splash where the pool is filled with giant inflatables. We’d like to see Becky Adlington or Michael Phelps try their hand at that assault course!
Beyonce has even performed in the stadium so if it’s good enough for not one but two queens, then you better get down there!
Alternatively, the park is still used for sporting events. Perfect for if you missed out on tickets to the Olympics, or just want to relive the magic. The Lee Valley Velopark is full of exciting bike races and in the Copper Box Arena, you can see the London Lions, the capital’s only basketball team, play.
All kids who love any kind of sport will love Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
I’d never been to the Olympic Park before so I was pretty excited to see where the famous 2012 games took place. We went on the Orbital which was definitely the highlight – super fun! I went with a few friends and had a good like exploring and looking around. I would say that a lot of the stuff to do was tailored to younger kids but we still had a good time chilling and exploring somewhere we’ve never been before.
