National Sports Centre, Crystal Palace
A large sports centre and athletics track, opened in 1964, close to the site of the former Crystal Palace.
Originally run by Sport England, but responsibility has been transferred to the London Development Agency. It is a Grade II* listed building.
The athletics stadium has a capacity of 15,500. It hosts international athletics meetings and is the home of an annual event on the athletics Grand Prix circuit. The complex also has a 50m swimming pool. Both are to be superseded by the 2012 Olympic site in East London.
