Members of the public can now use the white water centre's facilities

Lee Valley White Water Centre near Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, has been announced as the first London 2012 venue to open its doors for public use.

The facility, which was officially unveiled by HRH The Princess Royal last December, is set to host the Olympic canoe slalom competition next summer.

Lee Valley Regional Park Authority will own and run the centre before and after the Games, with facilities featuring a 300m competition course and a 160m intermediate/training course.

A 10,000sq m (107,639sq ft) finish lake and a FaulknerBrowns Architects-designed facility building with changing rooms, café, and spectator viewing area are also available.

Morrison Construction built the new venue, with S&P Architects working as the delivery designers for the project.
