Adventure Playgrounds

With two unique adventure play areas, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a paradise for little adventurers! Rock pools, sand pits, treehouses, slides and swings are waiting to be explored at the Tumbling Bay playground in the north of the Park while in the south there are bright red climbing walls, a giant sand pit and slides to be enjoyed in the Pleasure Gardens.

Walking Trails

Find yourself surrounded by nature without having to leave the city as you explore the Park's 560 acres. Discover secluded gardens, beautiful meadows, bench-lined boulevards and tranquil canal paths on one of the Park's four self-guided walking trails. Download your trail guide in advance from the Park's website to relive your memories of the Games with the interactive London 2012 trail where the sights and sounds of the Games come to life or learn more about the Park's wildlife and nature. Art lovers can discover more about the many pieces of art found around the Park while children can take on secret missions as part of the Explorers Guide to Adventures in the Park trail.

Water Fountains*

Don't miss the hugely popular waterworks fountains opposite London Stadium where 195 jets of water put on a show. With water shooting directly out of the floor, children will enjoy dodging the jets or getting wet. And with the sun set to be shining on us this weekend, this is the perfect place to cool down.

Perfect Picnic Spots

Make the most of the weather and enjoy eating outside with a picnic. Pick a spot among the landscaped gardens or in the wildflower meadows, or sit in the shade created by the iconic sporting venues from London 2012. 

Walk in the Footsteps of Champions

The Park has no shortage of landmarks, from the London Aquatics Centre and its wave-like roof to the striking ArcelorMittal Orbit. Perhaps most iconic of all are the Olympic Rings, located in the north of the Park, which are perfectly placed for a family snap! Together with the Paralympic Agitos, these are well worth a look to round off your day and capture the spirit of the Park.

And if you've got a few pennies to spare…

Why not finish your day with a trip to the ArcelorMittal Orbit, London's only viewing platform where you can experience un-interrupted views of the city AND a hair-raising thrill ride, The Slide. Get your blood pumping and your adrenaline jumping the 12 twists, turns and drops of the world's tallest and longest tunnel slide, and enjoy mesmerising skyline views of up to 20 miles across London, from the ArcelorMittal Orbit's two viewing platforms.

*The Waterworks Fountains are switched on between 10am and 5pm each day.
