Greenwich Park is London’s oldest Royal Park, dating back to 1433. The park boasts buildings of historic importance such as the Old Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen’s House. It is part of the Greenwich World Heritage site and home to the Prime Meridian Line.
With such a historical importance it provides the perfect venue for the equestrian cross-country event, the combined running and shooting event of the Modern Pentathlon. The 5.7 kilometre cross-country course features over 42 jumps and provides riders and horses with water obstacles, slopes and hills.
All the jumps integrated colourful and bio-diverse Wildflower Turf which guaranteed that the venue provided a natural and wild element to the design of the course.
