London's Olympic Park is Now Open and Welcoming the Public to Play
April 8, 2014 at 8:54 AM
Good news for those who have always dreamed of living out Olympic fantasies, as some of the goodies from the 2012 Olympics in London are now open to the public. You might not be able to score a gold medal, but you certainly can score some decent snapshots of yourself enjoying the equipment.
A bunch of stuff over at the brand new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was dedicated and opened up to the public last week, so go ahead and add this latest addition to your tourist to-do list when over in London.
Pictures in front of the Olympic rings are certainly an option—and a great idea—however, there’s even more included in a potential visit. Jump into the pool, take a dive off a platform, or just enjoy some of the other first-class facilities.
Olympian Tom Daley—of the United Kingdom—has even moved his home base closer to the area’s aquatic center, as it’s still as good of a spot as ever to train, stay active, and to prepare for the 2016 games.
At this point most areas are open to the public, but others still require some preparation before the doors open to one an all. Places like the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre are scheduled for a public debut in June 2014, so by the time you visit this summer—you’ll be training and playing like an Olympian.
