As well as hosting the swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and Modern Pentathlon competitions, the Aquatics Centre acts as the main gateway to the Olympic Park during the London 2012 Games, with the majority of spectators entering the park across a bridge that runs over the top of the venue. There are two 50-metre swimming pools at the Aquatics Centre - one for competition and one for warm-up - and a 25-metre diving pool, along with its own dry warm-up area. With its wave-like roof design, the venue has a distinctive look and after the Games the facility will be transformed into a community centre - with both pools having moveable floors to allow for greater flexibility for use by swimmers of all abilities. Built with the environment in mind, the pool water will be reused to flush the toilets at the venue.
