The tour will begin at the Park Community Arena, followed by a walk around the Olympic Legacy Park.

The Park Community Arena, developed by Canon Medical Systems, is a carbon-neutral unique 2,500 seat multi-purpose arena. It is set to become a basketball hub for Sheffield and to be used by the Sheffield Sharks and Sheffield Hatters. The arena will also contain a medical diagnostic centre which features AI-assisted CT and MRI scanners. We will be touring the Arena itself.

Located on the site of the former Don Valley Stadium - Attercliffe, the Olympic Legacy Park (OLP) was established to regenerate the former Don Valley Stadium site. It is now a campus for sports, health, well being and builds on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic games. Led by Legacy Park Ltd it has partners including Sheffield City Council, Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. The collaboration between the key institutions took place in 2015 and now the OLP houses Sheffield Hallam University's Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC), Oasis Academy Don Valley, UTC and Don Valley Bowl. We will be touring part of the OLP. 

On winning the 2018 AJ Architecture Awards - Landscape Architecture of the Year "Ben Handley, from Ares Landscape Architects, commented: “Just to be shortlisted for this award was great recognition of the contribution that Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is making to the city and to delivering the legacy promised by the 2012 London Olympics."
