The Athletes’ Village is located next to the Olympic Park and will accommodate the athletes and officials during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. After the Games, the Village will provide 2,818 new homes for east London.
The open spaces between the new homes will have play areas, cycling facilities, and picnic and recreation spaces. These new spaces are in addition to the significant landscaping works already taking shape on the Olympic Park.
Olympic Delivery Authority Chairman John Armitt said: ‘The Athletes’ Village will not only deliver essential new homes for Londoners, it will create new parks, trees, play areas and open spaces that can be enjoyed by new and existing communities for generations to come.’
