The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was the buzzing location for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It has become a new national and international sport and leisure destination as well as an exciting cultural and residential area of the capital.
Part of the Park is managed by the London Legacy Development Corporation whilst the northern part (including Lee Valley VeloPark and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre) is managed by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.
Starting this walk to the south of the Olympic Park at Three Mills you will find out about the Studio's at Three Mills and then past the Victorian Pumping House on the green way. On to the Olympic Park you will find some of the hidden gems in the park whilst spotting some of the most iconic Olympic sporting venues; including the Olympic Stadium (now home to West Ham and re named the London Stadium) and the London Aquatics Centre.
The new pleasure gardens are a delight to walk through around the south of the Park which should have a wealth of wildlife on display. The walk is between and hour and a half and two hours long.
The meeting point for this walk is Three Mills Green outside The Old Mill House Three Mills - There is three hours free parking in the Tescos car park next to Three Mills but be aware you need to purchase something in Tesco and ensure the walk is no longer than three hours.
