London 2012 has unveiled the venue plan for the Paralympic Games.

The Paralympic venues will mainly be located at the Olympic Park Zone and the River Zone – 15 minutes travel from each other – to minimse disruption and travel times for the Paralympians.

The Olympic Park will house the main athletics stadium; the hockey centre, which will also host seven-a-side and five-a-side football; and the velopark for track cycling.

The park’s three indoor arenas will host wheelchair rugby, goalball, wheelchair basketball, judo and wheelchair fencing.

The aquatics centre will host swimming and the athletes’ village will house the press and International Broadcast Centre.

Eton Manor, in the north of the park, will host archery and wheelchair tennis.

The River Zone – a temporary arena to be located at Greenwich – will feature sitting volleyball, and Greenwich Park will cater for equestrian sports.

ExCeL will showcase boccia, powerlifting, wheelchair basketball and table tennis. Outside these two zones, road cycling will take place in Regent’s Park in central London, adaptive rowing at Eton Dorney and sailing will be located at Weymouth and Portland.
