One of the gates to the Flower Garden in Greenwich Park has been reopened after being fenced over yesterday.
While the Flower Garden itself and the entrances at Vanburgh Hill Gate and Blackheath remained open, park users were surprised yesterday to find that the gate at the corner of Bower Avenue and Great Cross Avenue had been blocked by metal fencing.
Public information brochures and maps had not given advance notice of the gate being closed yesterday.
Greenwich.co.uk raised this issue with London 2012 organisers and was today told by a LOCOG spokesperson:
"We are pleased to say that we have been able to remove the two fencing panels in front of the gate in question today and the gate is now open.
"However, this gate will be closed again and fenced off from 1st July when Great Cross Avenue and the routes to and from Maze Hill and Vanbrugh Gates will be closed off for part of the test event period. This gate and the paths will re-open from 5th July."
Organisers also say they will update access notices which they put up yesterday.
Preparations for the Greenwich Park Eventing International are now well underway - see yesterday's post on the jumps that are being installed for the cross country event.
