Olympic Park opening weekend proves hugely successful

The opening weekend of the Olympic Park was hugely successful, as thousands of visitors flocked to the new attraction.

According to itv.com, over a period of two days, 50,000 people came to visit the London attraction. It’s the first time the park has been open to the public since the Olympic Games in 2012. Now the space has been transformed into an attraction aimed at families. There’s an adventure playground for children to play on and water fountains for people to run through when it’s hot.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is yet another great London attraction that will hopefully bring more tourists into the capital and help support local businesses.

Dennis Hone, chief executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, says the park’s transformation has only just begun.

“It was great to see so many people at the park this weekend using it as it’s supposed to be used, as a new destination for London,” he states. “Our ambitious plans for culture and education will be complimented by some of the best events to come and enjoy like this April, Ride London and National Paralympic Day to name just a few.”

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is urging families to come and visit the new site, particularly during the upcoming bank holiday weekend, reports standard.co.uk.
