Jubilee Gardens in London by West 8
June 22, 2012

West 8 Jubilee Gardens LondonThe 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.
