Six years on from London 2012, and the legacy of the Olympic Games can still be felt in London. Nowhere is this more so than in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the venue for the historic event and home to such monuments as the Lee Valley VeloPark, the Copper Box, London Aquatics Centre and, of course, the Olympic Stadium.
As part of our schedule of summer holiday play schemes, we will be organising a picnic in the Olympic Park on August 23rd. This is one of a series of summer park picnics across London that will also see us take the children to:
- Lloyd Park on Tuesday, August 7th
- Regent's Park on Tuesday, August 14th
- Olympic Park on Thursday, August 23rd
- Valentines Park on Thursday, August 30th
We will arrange food for those children attending, as well as fun and games. Places are available to all of our disabled children, as well as their siblings. So this is a great opportunity for parents and carers to benefit from some respite time. But beyond this, it also encourages integration of disabled children among their siblings and peers.
The park picnics will be scheduled for different days of the week so that all children have the opportunity to attend and enjoy at least one, if not all, of the trips.
