Countdown to North Park Opening
We are the public sector, not-for-profit organisation responsible for the long-term planning, development, management and maintenance of the Olympic Park and its facilities after the London 2012 Games.
We are responsible for delivering one of the most important Olympic legacy promises made in the original London 2012 bid. This key pledge concerns the physical legacy: the long-term planning, development, management and maintenance of the Olympic Park and its facilities after the London 2012 Games.
It is our task to transform and integrate one of the most challenged areas in the UK into world-class, sustainable and thriving neighbourhoods.
This will create a new quarter of the city in east London – an inclusive community, a thriving business zone and a must-see destination where people will choose to live, work and play, and return time and time again.
On 2nd February 2012, we announced that we had appointed BAM Nuttal to assist us in the transformation of the Park after the Games. The construction work is expected to take up to 18 months to complete, although we have structured the work into phases so that sections of the Park will be opened to the public from summer 2013.
We have called the new phase ‘Clear, Connect, Complete’ because with this work we will:
Clear the Games-time overlay including temporary venues, walkways and roads;
Connect the Park with new roads, cycle ways and pedestrian paths that stitch across the site and into the surrounding area;
and Complete the permanent venues, bridges and parklands for their legacy use.

The Legacy Communities Scheme (LCS) defines the overarching vision that will guide the long-term development of the Park, its neighbourhoods, venues and infrastructure after the Games.
The scheme has evolved through collaboration between and engaging with partners, stakeholders and public consultation to help shape the plans and vision for the future Park, which will be known as the Queen Elizabeth Park after the Games.
We will take responsibility for the Park as a single, managed estate, as set out in the LCS. We will take a long-term view, using our expertise and experience across property development, regeneration, international business and marketing, and working with public and private partners.
