|Canoeing||12,000||The Lee Valley White Water Centre is located 30 kilometres north of the Olympic Park, on the edge of the 1,000-acre River Lee Country Park Ė part of the Lee Valley Regional Park.
Both courses were built from scratch, along with a 10,000 square metre lake. This feeds a system of pumps that provide the course with 15 cubic metres of water per second. The white water is created by these pumps and obstacles placed along the course.
Following the end of the London 2012 Games, the venue will offer an extensive sports development programme, run in partnership with the British Canoe Union.|
