Jubilee Gardens

West 8 — Jubilee Gardens

The renovation of Jubilee Gardens was completed in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration in 2012 and the London 2012 Olympics where it will serve as a key public space. The park is located under the iconic London Eye on South Bank promenade and neighbouring Festival Hall and County Hall.

Slightly elevated from street level, the gently sloping topography presents visitors with a truly spectacular view of London. The undulating hills allow for dramatic river views with a panoramic backdrop featuring the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. The lush greens of the park reflect The All England Lawn Tennis Club; Wimbledon, while the stark white granite hard surface detailing is suggestive of the White Cliffs of Dover.

Multifunctional in purpose, the wide pathways create opportunity for informal gatherings as well as performance spaces and a new adventure playground for younger visitors. The paved granite paths meander through quintessential English park trees, including English Oaks, Common Beech and Lime Trees. Striking flowerbeds evoke grand planting schemes reminiscent of traditional Royal Parks. The Jubilee Gardens were created in 1977 to mark the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and were irretrievably damaged during the construction of the Jubilee line. The Diamond Jubilee afforded an opportunity to transform the remnant grassed garden into a world-class park. Access routes through the park connecting Belvedere Road, and nearby Waterloo Station to the Hungerford Bridge across The Thames to Queen’s Walk are key design features.

Its central position in the heart of London nestled amongst the city’s notable public and cultural landmarks, together with its close proximity to a key public transport portal, namely Waterloo Station provide the set up to ensure that Jubilee Gardens will become one of the most recognisable and prestigious public green spaces internationally.
