Post-Olympics community plans approved

Plans have been approved for a community building and play space in the Olympic Park.

The London Legacy Development Corporation will create the community hub in the north of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London after the 2012 Games.

The hub will have imaginative play facilities allowing children to build dens, investigate insects, climb trees and play on a series of platform walkways, slides and bridges.

There will also be sand and water play activities where budding engineers can create dams and locks to mimic the changes made to the River Lea after the Games.

Andrew Altman, chief executive of the LLDC, said: “The North Park will be the first area of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to open from July 2013.

“It will be one of the most beautiful green spaces in London with wetlands, clean waterways and beautiful parklands for everyone to enjoy.”
