Eton Manor will form the northern gateway to the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games with a design that gives careful consideration to the future legacy of the site, connection to its surroundings and ability to inspire athletes. During the Games it will become the location of Olympic and Paralympics aquatics training facilities and host 10,500 spectators for the wheelchair tennis during Paralympics. Afterwards, in ‘Legacy mode’, it will become a regional and community sports facility, incorporating a centre for excellence in tennis and hockey, owned and operated by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. An accessible, sustainable masterplan reconciles these uses, each with its own precise functional requirements.
