New artwork has been installed around the site of the new Olympic Legacy Park in Attercliffe Common.

The artwork showcases the venues and activities that will take place at the OLP once it is full operational next year.

The images, created by Sheffield Graphic Design Agency, feature Sheffield Hallam University’s Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, the UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park Campus, Oasis Academy Don Valley, the Sheffield Sharks and Sheffield Eagles.

The 35-acre park is the biggest London 2012 legacy project of its kind in europe and looks set to become an internationally recognised centre for health, wellbeing and innovation. Construction work has just started on Sheffield’s second University Technical College - UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park campus. Due to open in September 2016, the £10 million facility, for 600 students, will specialise in the medical, sports sciences, and computing sectors.

The Rt Hon Richard Caborn, project lead for the OLP, said: “The new artwork on Attercliffe Common looks fantastic and gives a flavour for some of the incredible activity that will take place on the OLP, from the very latest health and wellbeing research to community sport.

“With the Oasis Academy Don Valley already open and work well underway on the UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park campus, you get a feel for the scale of this unique project.

“Through the development of the Olympic Legacy Park, Sheffield will become a living laboratory, providing opportunities for people to lead healthier and more fulfilled lives, and placing the city at the heart of health and wellbeing innovation.”
