The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) said this morning that parts of the northern section of the park, mostly made up of open parklands and waterways, will open in July 2013 alongside the Multi-Use Arena, which is to be retrofitted and used for community and sports events and concerts.

The Olympic cycling facilities will open to the public by the end of 2013, the company said.

The LLDC added that the southern section of the park, which includes the aquatics centre and main athletics stadium, would open at Easter 2014.
Andrew Altman, chief executive of the LLDC, said: "The transformation will take the park from an Olympic site to a new piece of London that’s owned and shaped by the community in and around it.

"Above all, the park will create a place of practical benefit for the surrounding community – a place to take your children swimming at weekends, go to school, walk your dog or go to a festival in the summer."
