The effect of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games on health and natural environment engagement in the Lee Valley (NE574)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

As the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy was designed to deliver a long-term physical activity legacy, especially to the local population, Natural England were interested in how the Games may have affected the health and outdoor visit behaviour of people from the Lee Valley. This report therefore examined how indicators of physical activity and natural environment engagement as measured by the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural environment (MENE) survey, changed in light of the Games for the people of the Lee Valley.
This report is not intended to try to approve or disprove the legacy. However we hypothesised that if there were improvements in, for example, physical activity levels for respondents in the Lee Valley, these may begin to occur in the months following the end of the Games.
