The London Olympic Park contains venues such as the Olympic Village, Olympic Stadium, Aquatics Centre, Velodrome and the Copper Box. It will be renamed Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and is part of the transformation in the post-Olympics phase in order to further regeneration in that area. It will reopen in July 2013, and will be Europe’s largest urban park. It will contain wetland habitats and native species to promote local ecology. Furthermore, a new university will be injected to make use of the abundant sporting and communication facilities.
