Olympic Park

It was great to see the place where the Olympic was held. Although we didnt go inside it, the structure was huge and am sure served its purpose.

I visited the park during the Rio Olympics and it was not my first Olympic experience. The atmosphere in Rio was lovely, people were warm and enthusiastic. I felt the park was a lovely compromise between representative function and lowering the costs. All I hope is the park will not deteriorate...

During the Olympics this stadium was beautiful, but i have since heard it has gone downhill some. I guess they are not spending the money on it they once were.

Just how big they have made this Olympic park they truly have made the uk sports stadiums look miniature. Wouldn't recommend it on a very hot day but there is alot of places for refreshments. I would use local transport to gain access to this to visit as a tourist but also be vigilant to not stand out, have your... More

If you like sports then of course this is great, Rio hosted a great Olympics and did better than what the critics said, the vibe here was really good.

I feel the like the high alert scare of the Olympics possible terror attacks made it feel like the organization was poor, but overall felt safe and well secured. Staff was friendly.

Just the colourful sign alone is worth the trip. It is massive. There is a museum here which had hundreds of people lined up to get in. We were not ami st them. But the looks of the museum are wonderful. It is a very pleasant area to walk and enjoy.

Considering the bad press the stadiums turned out amazing. The only thing that wasn't finished was some Tarmac wasn't laid down in the outdoor dinning area.

Great venues for the Olympics and Paralympics! I was pleasantly surprised. I wish there was a bit more shade in the common areas because some days were very sunny and hot. Food and drinks were a bit overpriced and there wasn't a lot of variety but it was decent and we had a good time! I hope this place is... More
