The Latest Coronavirus Updates

See here for the latest information from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Last updated: Monday 1 June at 8:00am

Following the Government's latest advice the Park remains open to visitors, with the parklands and canal paths still accessible to all, seven days a week.

Gatherings of up to a maximum of six people are now permitted, however Park users must stay at least two metres apart from anyone outside of their household.

The safety of our visitors is our top priority. Therefore BBQs are not allowed at the Park due to the fire hazard. Please also keep dogs on a lead.

London's parks are important at this time to give people the space they need to exercise and socialise with loved ones. The acres of open space are ideal for keeping active in the fresh air, whilst enjoying nature and the iconic surroundings.  However, it is essential to follow the Government's guidance on social distancing so that our park can remain open.

More information about the facilities and venues on the Park can be found below:

  • A number of events have been postponed or cancelled. Please check our What’s On page for the latest information.

Here are some ways that you can help us to keep the Park as safe as possible:

  • Stay at least two metres away from anyone else visiting the Park.
  • Do not gather in groups of more than six people.
  • Take any litter home with you – this reduces the need for frequent refuse collection and keeps our Park clean and tidy.
  • Do not bring a BBQ.
  • Keep your dog on a lead.
  • Car parking is very limited around the Park, so we encourage visitors to walk or cycle to the Park.
