Jubilee Gardens Playground Makeover
Jubilee Gardens, maintained by Gavin Jones since November 2017, are extremely popular with local residents, employees and visitors to the area from London, the UK and all over the world – entertaining some 8 million visitors a year.
The Central London open space, is managed by a small locally based charitable trust, comprising representatives of local residents, businesses and adjacent landowners.
The playground which originally opened in 2012, saw a much-needed upgrade after seven years of wear and tear from such heavy use. The playground’s most recent makeover, included a new safety surface and new equipment to improve the play value for younger children.
Jubilee Gardens Trust welcomed leader of Lambeth Council Cllr Jack Hopkins, and Mayor Cllr Ibrahim Dogus, to mark the official re-launching of the playground this August.
The cost of the makeover was met by Lambeth Council, using funding secured by the Council through the adjacent Southbank Place development.
Alex Valenzuela, General Manager for Jubilee Gardens Trust, commented : “We are very excited to unveil our newly refurbished playground. This was a collaborative effort with our playground supplier Timberplay and our contractor Gavin Jones, to create a superb playground that children can enjoy in this remarkable location.”
