London 2012 Legacy

Our role in delivering the sporting legacy from London 2012


Our three London 2012 legacy venues are at the heart of the enduring sporting legacy from the Games. More than 11 million people have visited Lee Valley VeloPark, Lee Valley White Water Centre and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre since they opened to the public – to cycle, raft, paddle, play hockey and tennis in stunning settings, to watch friends take part, to see the world’s best at an almost non-stop series of major international events, or just to glimpse at where history was made.. 

Read on to find out more about our stellar venues and the programmes and initiatives which are changing the lives of people in local communities, across the region and beyond. Download a copy of our legacy brochure 10 Years On: Our unique contribution to London 2012's sporting legacy for more information, including our plans for the future.
