Exclusive pictures: A glimpse inside the Olympic Park

A view of the future landscape of Newham

The Olympic Park has been closed off to outsiders for the past seven years and, for all the talk of Legacy, maps of the site cannot convey the size and scale of the new neighbourhoods and sports facilities soon to be a permanent feature of Newham’s landscape.

Here are some exclusive pictures from inside the Park as it operates during the London 2012 Games in anticipation of what it will be like when it begins to reopen in July 2013.

A full overview of the Legacy plans will be featured in the Recorder on Wednesday 8.
