During the Games, temporary seating will be installed around the venue for spectators.

After the Games, the spectator seating will be removed, and the venue will be developed into the Lee Valley White Water Centre, creating a major leisure attraction for canoeing and white water rafting as well as a venue for future international competition and sports development opportunities.

The structure replaces a swimming pool that was well known because of its wave machine and was an important part of the community in the Broxbourne area, which has grown substantially over the years due to its close proximity to the city of London.

Water flows for the first time into the white-water canoe course for the London 2012 Olympic Games

 

 

Paul Owen, Chief Executive, of the British Canoe Union:

 

“We are beginning to see a real transformation now that water is filling the course, the site no longer looks like a footprint of building works, it is really coming together as a world class Olympic canoeing venue. The progress also gives us a glimpse of the legacy it will leave behind for canoeists and we are all extremely excited about the benefits for the sport.”
