A key section of London's Olympic Park will finally be opened to the public this weekend weekend, following an 18-month transformation.
The southern section of the venue will open from 10am on April 5 along with the £22.3 million ArcelorMittal Orbit tower.
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) aims to make the 560 acre site a "new heart for east London" which is similar to the feel of London's Southbank.
The newly revamped section of the park boasts a new tree-lined promenade, interactive water fountains and four themed walking trails which explore the key sights of the London 2012 Games.
The Olympic Stadium will remain closed until August 2016 although it will host five matches during next year's Rugby World Cup.
