The award winning, 10,000 acre Lee Valley Regional Park stretches an incredible 26 miles along the leafy banks of the River Lee, from Ware in Hertfordshire to the Thames at East India Dock Basin. Whether it is white water rafting, athletics, golf, horse riding, ice skating, fishing, cycling, bird watching, camping or simply exploring the countryside Lee Valley Regional Park offers something for its five million annual visitors.
Following on from the superb London 2012 Olympic Games comes this unique opportunity to oversee the operations of our Parklands and Venues which include four fantastic Olympic sites: Lee Valley White Water Centre, Lee Valley VeloPark, Lee Valley Hockey Centre and Lee Valley Tennis Centre plus the award winning Lee Valley Athletics Centre and heritage sites, nature reserves and farms.
