Lee Valley Regional Park

Park Development Framework

Return to homepage

Lee Valley Regional Park is known and recognised as one of the nation’s great parks; a place that offers a unique combination of activities, sights and experiences.

For over 40 years the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority has been working alongside many partner organisations to transform the post-industrial land along the River Lee into a place for leisure, recreation, sport and nature.

The Park is now a mosaic of award-winning open spaces, heritage sites, country parks, farms, golf courses, lakes and riverside trails, campsites, marinas, angling and boating locations. All of these attract more than 4 million visitors a year. In addition, the Park will include a number of new facilities delivered as part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. These facilities include the Lee Valley White Water Centre near Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, the Lee Valley Velodrome and VeloPark, and the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centres, all within the Olympic Park at Stratford.

Our Park Development Framework is a suite of documents that will collectively provide the blueprint for our future efforts: setting out what we want to achieve, how we plan to balance competing demands, and how we intend to make best use of the limited resources available.

We hope it will provide inspiration and focus for the future collective efforts of landowners within the Park, our partners, stakeholders and everyone with an interest in the Lee Valley and Lee Valley Regional Park.
