Explore the Park

There’s plenty to do at London’s most exciting Park! Relax in the beautiful parklands, discover hidden artworks dotted around the Park, let the kids loose in the exciting playgrounds, watch international sports tournaments in the iconic venues or try out a new sport yourself!

Whether you’re planning your first trip or just looking for inspiration, here are ten tips to make the most out of your visit – remember, the Park is open seven days a week and free to enter.

  1. Zoom to the top of the UK’s tallest sculpture, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, for breathtaking views across London – or take on the world’s longest tunnel slide
  2. Set off on an adventure around the Park with one of the free trail guides. There are four to choose from: London 2012, Art in the Park, Parkland and Wildlife or Children's Adventures in the Park.
  3. Choose from cycling, swimming, diving, tennis, hockey and a host of other exciting sports to try out in the iconic venues from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
  4. The fountains outside London Stadium are a favourite for visitors of all ages, and on from March to October. Stand between the snaking pathway of the fountain and find yourself in a labyrinth of computer-controlled walls of water!
  5. Enjoy a bite to eat at one of the award-winning restaurants and cafés at the Park. Eating-in can only be done with those in your household, in line with Government guidelines, however many restaurants at the Park offer a takeaway service.
  6. Unwind with a picnic in the relaxing parklands in the north of the Park and spot some of the wildlife that have made the Park their home.
  7. Relax on a boat tour along the canal while an expert guide tells you little-known facts about the Park – or take to the waters yourself on a swan pedalo.
  8. Strike a pose next to the Olympic Rings or the Paralympic Agitos in the north of the Park and share your photos with us @noordinarypark on Twitter and @queenelizabetholympicpark on Instagram
  9. Take a tour of the iconic London Stadium for a sneak peek behind the scenes of this world-famous venue.
  10. Let the kids run free in the amazing play areas across the Park –  with Tumbling Bay in the north of the Park and climbing walls, sand pits, an outdoor gym and more in the south of the Park! Please note that some areas of playgrounds are closed for visitors' safety.
