    Excellent venue. Glad to see it being used after the Olympics finished.

    Soulless. Poor roofing. Tannoy was crap. Toilets inadequate. Not paying that much for beer or food. Seating was good, though.

    They have done a great job, fab place for children and plenty to see and do. But the park needs more food outlets & public toilets, everything in place at the moment is either full or hard to find!

    This summer's Olympics games in London generated 28% less CO2 emissions than was forecast. The organizers had promised the 2012 edition would be "the greenest games ever". Mission: accomplished.
