More than four million people visited the Olympic Park in Stratford during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. But now the party is over, work begins on a £300m project to transform the site into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with homes, facilities, workplaces and venues.
The Athletes' Village, was home to 17,000 athletes and officials from 200 countries. It will be turned into 2,818 homes which will be known as East Village. Other areas of the Park will be turned into four more residential areas over the coming years.
After a protracted bidding process, the future tenancy of the Stadium has still to be confirmed, with four long-term proposals on the table, among them football and F1 racing. Due to reopen in 2014, it will reduce in capacity from 80,000 to 60,000 and will host the World Athletics Championship in 2017.
The Copper Box, which was the venue for Olympic handball and Paralympic goalball, will become a multi-use arena, with public sports halls which will cost the same to hire as local leisure centres, and the ability to host concerts, events and tournaments. It is due to reopen on 27 July, 2013 - a year to the day since the Olympic Games opened - the first venue to do so.
The hair-raising contours of the BMX circuit will be softened and the track combined with the velodrome and new cycle paths to form a public Velopark across the northern part of the Olympic Park, due to be completed in December 2013.
Designed by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the Aquatics Centre will become possibly the most glamorous local swimming pool in the world. The "wings" which housed 15,000 seats will be removed, revealing the venue's wave shape. Its two 50m pools and a diving pool will still be used for elite swimming contests as well as public swimming, when it reopens in March 2014. The Water Polo Arena will be dismantled.
The 12,000 seat Basketball Arena is one of the largest temporary venues be used for an Olympic Games. It will be dismantled and may be used by other sport tournaments.
The temporary Riverbank Arena will disappear from its current location and Eton Manor will become the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre which will host the 2015 EuroHockey tournament.
The area around the Orbit sculpture, which will remain as a public viewing platform, will be renamed the South Plaza, as shown in this computer generated image. The London Legacy Development Corporation, which is transforming the Park, says it will be London's newest space, dedicated to entertainment.
