Queen Elizabeth Park Opens

From the BBC
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London has opened to vandals for the first time since the London 2012 Games.

Alongside unused sports and arts venues, London's newest park features interactive water fountains that will run until the council gets bored with the idea and an adventure playground ready for taggers to make their mark.

Visitors will be able to look at the 375ft-high (114.5m) ArcelorMittal Orbit tower as it goes into decline and then closes.

It is the biggest park to be opened in London for a century.

It is hoped the attraction will shut up all the people who complained that the Olympics were a waste of money for long enough for some post-Olympics quango to disappear off with a nice fat redundancy check.

Visiting the park is free, although you probably won't bother.
