Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Pod


Challenges, optimism and hope

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is transforming East London as a place to live, work and play.

And in 2020, it became vital to the local community, and it's neighbouring London boroughs, as it more than coped and adapted to the huge challenges of the worldwide pandemic. As well as vast grounds for people to escape too for fresh air during lockdown, building and development work continued as the Park looks to deliver innovative business districts, quality neighbourhoods, schools, universities and cultural centres alongside world-class sports venues made famous by London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

In this episode, Lyn Garner, the Chief Executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, not only talks about the achievements of the past year but more importantly looks ahead and focuses on the future, and one that plays a vital role in London's economic and social recovery from coronavirus and lockdown. We also hear from a Legacy Youth Board member on the hope the Park brings to youngsters, disproportionately affected.
