A new athletes zone and improvements to visitor facilities form part of £4.5 million plans for Lee Valley White Water Centre in Hertfordshire...
The venue's starring role in the 2012 Olympics saw Tim Baillie win a gold medal in the canoe slalom with Etienne Stott.
Athlete Richard Hounslow landed himself a silver medal.
Today, Lee Valley became the first London 2012 venue to officially open to the public after the Games. The investment will see it better able to cope with increased visitor numbers.
An outdoor classroom, gym, physiotherapy suite and pavillion are included in the plans.
A number of new community programmes are also being launched to give thousands of people the chance to take part in activities.
