Lee Valley Regional Park offers everything from adrenalin charged white water rafting to some of the most precious open spaces in the capital, from the chance to ride the London 2012 Olympic velodrome to getting away from it all with miles of walking, running and cycling routes. Our Sport and Active Recreation Team strives to create sustainable opportunities for people to use the whole park to get and stay active, in both traditional and untraditional settings.
In order to achieve Lee Valley Regional Park Authority’s vision to continue to be a world class leisure destination our team has the following mission;
“A park that delivers a range of high quality sport and recreation opportunities to increase participation and enrich the lives of our communities.”
The role of our team is to facilitate these opportunities, whilst ensuring they’re available to the widest possible audience in every corner of the park’s 10,000 acres.
Our wider Sport and Leisure Team is made up of two further departments; Events and Youth and Schools. Both actively support and enhance the delivery of the team’s strategic objectives through the delivery of their own portfolio of events, progammes and initiatives.
In 2019 our Sport and Active Recreation team received the ‘Quest Active Communities Award’, achieving Quest Stretch ‘Outstanding’ status. Quest is the UK leisure industry’s recognised quality assurance tool with the team currently one of only four organisations across the country to receive such an award.
