Online guide to post-Games Olympic Park goes live
People keen to keep an eye on the transformation of the Olympic Park are now able to do so online.

Those who sign up at www.noordinarypark.co.uk will also get updates on any new homes, jobs and business opportunities, and cultural events.
Interim chief executive Dennis Hone said: “The Park’s fantastic venues will give people the chance to follow in the footsteps of our great Olympians and Paralympians.”
The corporation has also appointed a new team to head up its planning unit.
