The progress of the construction of the Greenwich Park Arena.
This summer, Greenwich Park will host the Olympic and Paralympic Equestrian and Olympic Modern Pentathlon event.
The Olympic events will take place from 28 July – 12 August and the Paralympic events from 30 August – 4 September.
London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has worked closely with The
Royal Parks, local residents and businesses to ensure that work to
prepare for these events has the minimum impact on the Park and on Park
users. Most of Greenwich Park will remain open until 7 July 2012, when
it will close until 4 August in order to prepare for the Games. Access
to areas of the Park will be reopened as soon as possible after
cross-country day. The Children’s Playground and parts of The Flower
Garden will remain open except on 30 July during the Cross Country
event. The Queen’s House will be open until late June and then reopen in
mid September. Access to The Royal Observatory will continue until
mid/late July and then reopen in early August. The National Maritime
Museum will remain open the entire summer.
