London Olympics 2012 to Use Hyde Park for Key Venues

From the spectacular Opening Ceremony to the thrilling sporting actions, the Olympic Games are always incredible.

London has hosted the Olympics Games on last two occasions and is going to be the host for the third time in 2012. London Olympics 2012 will make the capital the first city on the earth to have hosted three Olympiads.

London Olympics '12 will take place in many historic and well-known venues across London. Amongst the spectacular venues, Hyde Park is definitely not to be missed. The park will host a couple of exciting sports such as the Triathlon and Marathon Swimming. At Hyde Park, spectators will enjoy a grandstand view of the finishing area as well as will see hundreds of high-energy athletes swimming, cycling and running on the course.

Hyde Park is London's largest royal park, and is within easy walking distance of top quality accommodation and wonderful shops. The park is home to many grassroots sports clubs. Every day, the Serpentine Lake sees the host of club members swimming every season, even on Christmas Day.

For the London Olympics 2012, the seats will be built in the park and the course will be marked out. When the games will be finished, the grandstand, course and seats will be removed. During the Olympic Games, the park will organise large numbers of music, theatre and cultural events.
