An online guide to future plans for the Olympic Park and its sporting venues has been launched.
Online visitors can follow in the footsteps of Olympic and Paralymic stars such as Chris Hoy in the Velodrome or Ellie Simmonds in the Aquatics Centre.
The website, www.noordinarypark.co.uk, guides visitors through the attractions, which the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will offer as it reopens in phases from July 2013 to spring 2014. Website subscribers can also keep up to date with plans for new homes, jobs and business opportunities, cultural events and attractions.
The Legacy Corporation is overseeing a £292m transformation programme of the park called Clear, Connect, Complete.
The corporation’s chief executive, Dennis Hone, said: “The Olympic and Paralympic Games were extraordinary and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be no ordinary park.”
Games-time structures including temporary venues, bridges, walkways and roads will be cleared and the park will be connected to the surrounding area with new roads, cycle and foot paths. Permanent venues, bridges and parklands will also be completed.
