Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

KidRated’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Top Tips:


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 the use 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!


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 the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • Great for a free day out for the family as there’s lots to do. The fountains by The Orbit are fun on a sunny day. Bring spare clothes and let the kids get soaked. (It’s likely to happen anyway!) There’s a climbing wall nearby too.
  • The View Tube is a fab community cafe near the Park (behind The Orbit) with really good tea and cakes.
  • Walk through the Park towards the VeloPark and you’ll reach the Tumbling Bay Playground which has sand, water, climbing and more. The cafe here is the most kid-friendly but also always busy.
  • If you didn’t bring a picnic, or the weather changes and you still need feeding, there are loads of eateries at Westfield Stratford. Cafe Football is good for families.
