Boris Johnson has urged Londoners to continue to head to the Olympic Park after figures revealed that 50,000 people visited the area on its opening weekend.
The London Legacy Development Corporation led the transformation of the park in just 18 months as new walkways, playgrounds water fountains were introduced.
"Londoners have voted with their feet by turning up in their hoards to declare this opening weekend a great success. With a season of bank holidays nearly upon us, I urge families to head East and visit London’s latest visitor attraction," the mayor added.
