To commemorate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, the Olympic Park will be renamed as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. But more than just a name, the park will also be transformed as a new destination, where residents and workers as well as visitors can take advantage of the brand new district of the capital.
With new homes, news schools, cutting-edge and contemporary venues, admirable public parklands plus year-round program events, everyone will surely be delighted to visit the new park. Set to open on July 27, 2013, exactly a year after the successful London 2012 Olympics, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will come to life in two phases, starting with the North Park and Copper Box.
One of the new major London attractions will be the Copper Box: the first major sporting venue in the English capital, where customers will be able to witness a vast, fantastic array of sports including basketball, wheelchair basketball, handball, netball, and judo to name a few. Health and fitness gyms will also be available as well as exercise studios and a cafe for the locals. When not hosting sporting events, Copper Box will also be used as a place for concerts, comedy shows, or corporate dinners.
North Park, on the other hand, will show the greener parklands, which surrounds the parkways and the commercial business district of the Press and Broadcast Centres. By the time it opens, everyone will be welcomed with the sublime green spaces that will cover most of the Park.
The opening of the South Park and Hub will surely be a major event when it opens on Spring 2014 as it will complete the metamorphosis of the park. It will be the ultimate stopover in London whether you’re visiting the sporting, cultural, or entertainment attractions of the park. Parts of the opening of the South Park are the Aquatics Centre with its astounding wave-shaped central section that’s included in the permanent architectural legacy of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. ArcelorMittal Orbit, UK’s tallest structure and observation tower at the heart of the Olympic Park, will also open on this day.
Before you begin your Stratford Tours, be sure to catch-up the opening of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this July. It’s a once in a lifetime moment that you shouldn’t dare miss. See you there!
