River Lea towards the Olympic Stadium
Looking north east from its junction with the River Lea Navigational Cut just below Old Ford Locks, it is clear that there is a towpath along the Old Lea here, which was closed due to Olympic Park construction. (hence Blue boards).
Still closed while the park is being re-developed.

It contains the athletes' Olympic Village and several of the sporting venues including the Olympic Stadium and Aquatics Centre. The park is overlooked by ArcelorMittal Orbit, an observation tower and Britain's largest piece of public art. After the Olympics, the park will be known as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.
