Last day photographing a park almost fully open to the public. I spent my time walking around the Lea Valley Velopark and the Hockey and Tennis Centre. It is interesting to see how the last touches have been dealt with. Despite my omnipresent criticisms I can see that the kids playground and the greens around are already a big success, and so is the Timber Lodge Café. As you head towards the A12 the calm of the Hackney flats reappears from an original vista. We can now walk and access all areas. I think they did a good job in the end. Not amazing but it could have been much worse.
