Transforming the capital's oldest Royal Park into a temporary Olympic and Paralympic venue has not been the smoothest of rides - but Greenwich Park proved to be one of the most popular London 2012 venues. On paper it is a superb venue for the Paralympic Equestrian events: located on the south bank of the Thames, around five miles south of the Olympic Park, its hillside location offers some truly spectacular views across to Canary Wharf and central London.  For the Games, spectators will pack a temporary raised arena (which has been built on stilts to counteract the sloping ground below without the need for digging) set behind the National Maritime Museum and the elegant colonnades of the Old Royal Naval College. With such a beautiful backdrop, you can see just why former royal hunting ground was chosen as an Olympic venue. As an advert for London, you can hardly do any better.
