One park, trashed.
This was where the London Live screens were located. Crowds who didn’t have stadium tickets came here to watch the games on the big screen.
This was once a great area for relaxing in the summer sunshine. Now the grass has gone, replaced by a mudbath. LOCOG’s solution seems just to have been to cover the area in forest bark. That’s going to be nice to lie on in the late summer. Let us hope that they spend the autumn and next spring re-turfing the park
I hope the Olympic Committee have put aside a lot of money to repair the sites around London after the events have finished. Walked through Hyde Park today, and after the recent bad weather the ground has been left in a horrendous state. Inside the fenced-off areas where they have been working it’s like a bomb site. It’s going to take a lot of work and money to restore the park to it’s former state
