The historic GreenwichPark will stage the Olympic and Paralympic Equestrian events and two of the five Modern Pentathlon events at this year’s Games. The 23,000 seat temporary venue, designed by Team Populous, sits immediately to the south of the Queen’s House, centred on the Grand Axis which runs through the park, with the skyscrapers which cluster at the Isle of Dogs, creating a striking backdrop.
The Equestrian event runs through the whole park, with Dressage within the arena itself and Cross Country on a temporary course of approximately 6km across the park. A run course of 1km in length has been laid through part of the park and arena as part of the Modern Pentathlon Run/Shoot event.
After the games the venue will be disassembled and the park will revert to its original public leisure use.
