A Walk in the Olympic Park

Stratford, London. Mon 31 Oct 2016

 

 I walk through Westfield on my way to the park. The signs to it are not clear

 But I walk out along the side of John Lewis towards a row of new buildings

 and cross this road to the signs saying it is the entrance to the park

 which doesn't look much like a park to me

 There is a tree - just one - and a large empty area

 across which is the Olympic swimming pool

 and looking in the other direction, rail, road and empty site with machinery

 

 

 The overground line comes in fron Hackney Wick

 

 People on 'Boris bikes' ride around the park

 

 and there are more at the stand

 

 I peer through the patterned glass into the swimming pool. It's a weekday afternoon and the pool is empty

 at tleft is the bridge I've just walked across

I walk around the pool to the side facing the Waterworks River
