As the world enjoys the greatest show on earth in Rio, with West Ham having kicked off their first season at the stadium and tickets for the Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit proving to be a summer scorcher, there’s no better place to be in London this summer than Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, scene of those unforgettable four weeks of sport in 2012.

Come down to BeachEast, the UK’s largest urban beach, for the Rio experience: with sand, pools, bars and live music. What’s more, until August 21, you can visit the Official Team GB FanZone at BeachEast to watch live coverage of the Rio Olympic Games on the big screen and try out some of the sports that our Team GB stars will be competing in.

Active August, our programme of free sporting activities is back by popular demand. With more than 250 free activities on offer, there’s something for everyone, whatever your age or ability. If you fancy seeing the park from a totally new perspective, come and try out our new swan pedalos. It’s a great way to explore the area.

On September 3, the incredible National Paralympic Day and Liberty Festival return with world premiere shows, giant interactive games and ParalympicsGB Carnival. You can try out different disability and inclusive sports for free.

There will also be an exclusive fanzone, giving you the chance to find out more about the Paralympic Games and meet ParalympicGB medallists. Liberty Festival features an exciting programme of music, dance, theatre, poetry, art and film. More details
