You don't realise just how big the park is when you're watching the games on TV. We spent about six hours there just walking around, seeing the sights.
It was exciting to see the stadium up close...
...and The Orbit (designed by Anish Kapoor) Britain's largest piece of public art.
I was intrigued by the BBC's temporary studio
made from containers.
The flowers were incredible. Beautiful, vibrant wild flowers everywhere.
If you were tired of walking around, there was plenty to do.
Bands to watch
The Beat Box to explore...
...with music by Mark Ronson and Katy B
Hidden gardens to discover...
...filled with messages from well wishers and fans.
At one point we managed to get a tiny glimpse of the spectators and athletes in the stadium. It was so thrilling and give us a glimpse of the excitement. The roar from the crowd sent shivers of exhilaration down my spine. One of the volunteers told us that the cheer when Usain Bolt won the 100m would stay with her for the rest of her life.
A very good day all round.
