Parklands and playgrounds

There's something for everyone at London's newest park, from idyllic riverside lawns and wetlands teeming with wildlife to giant climbing walls and intricate fountains.

Beautiful, vibrant and surprising, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a joy for nature lovers, whether you’re an expert horticulturalist or just looking for somewhere to relax with a picnic.  The Park’s 111 acres of open space include gardens full of flowering plants, broad meadows and intricate wetlands.

Gardens and meadows that thrilled visitors to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, like the exotic terraces of the 2012 Gardens, sit alongside newly planted areas such as the Canal Park, each designed by world-class landscape architects and planting experts.

Each area of the Park has a different character – from the wide, restful green spaces that border the River Lea in the north of the Park, to the modern pleasure gardens of the south of the Park.
