- Credit: submitted
Photos have been released showing how the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is changing and what it will look like when it reopens.
The images were released six month after the Olympic Opening Ceremony by the London Legacy Development Corporation, overseeing the park.
Since the park began its transformation nearly all of the temporary Games facilities have been removed, including the Riverside Hockey Stadium.
Work has also begun to dismantle the Basketball Arena and the Waterpolo Arena.
A number of events for when the Park begins to open in July 2013 have been secured.
