Relax in Jubilee Gardens

Found in the shadow of the London Eye on the South Bank, Jubilee Gardens got a bit of a spruce-up last summer, and it wasn't until your author spent the early evening relaxing in the sunshine here yesterday surrounded by established flowerbeds and lush green grass that he fully appreciated what a difference it has made.

The works were completed on 31st May last year, and have transformed what was until work started a rather plain area of flat grass into a gently rolling green park crossed by granite pathways with - we are told - 69 trees and a contemporary playground, as well as sympathetic and well-tended flower beds. When the sun is out if makes a fine place to lie out on the grass and pass half an hour or so.

  1. There was a playground before the renovations, but the new garden is great. Much better than before.

  2. Thanks for your input...I wasn't sure if the playground had been there before.

  3. Here are some pictures of the old gardens and playground.
