The Lee Valley White Water Centre is located 30 kilometres north of the Olympic Park, on the edge of the 1,000-acre River Lee Country Park. The centre has two separate courses: a 300 metre Olympic-standard competition course with a 5.5m descent, & a 160m intermediate/training course with a 1.6m descent. Both courses were built from scratch, along with a 10,000 sq metre lake.This feeds a system of pumps providing the course w/ 15 cubic metres of water per second.
