A Sporting Legacy

Creating a Zone of Sporting Excellence Lee Valley Legacy Update Report

Lee Valley Regional Park Authority is playing a leading role in helping to deliver an enduring and sustainable legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to ensure that the whole nation benefits from what was a truly outstanding event.

The Authority owns  three London 2012 venues; Lee Valley White Water Centre, which was the first London 2012 venue to open to the public before the Games and the first to reopen after them; Lee Valley VeloPark, with the iconic Velodrome at its heart and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, both of which are located on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The Authority has many years’ experience of running sports venues that are community focused and commercially driven. Comprehensive community programmes run alongside income generating activities.

This same business model has been adopted for our three London 2012 venues to ensure they are sustainable in the long term. They were designed to include opportunities for corporate hire and other premium commercial activities, and the income generated from these helps subsidise and drive sports development and social inclusion programmes.

Creating a Zone of Sporting Excellence Lee Valley Legacy Update Report provides an insight into the Authority’s legacy work, its progress to date and what the future holds for these venues to ensure that once they are open, all communities and abilities benefit from them for many years to come.
