Jubilee Country Park was purchased by Bromley Council to commemorate
the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II which was celebrated in 1977.
Originally the Park was a Gun Site and, after works to adapt it to
become a park, it opened without ceremony, in 1981 as “Jubilee Park”.
In July 1983, to avoid giving the impression that Jubilee Park was a
formally laid out area in common with some other municipal parks, it
was decided to add “Country” to its name.
In 1996 Jubilee Country Park was designated as a Local Nature Reserve.
A plaque to commemorate this announcement may be seen at the Alan’s
Path pedestrian entrance to the park on Southborough Lane (almost
opposite the Harvester Public House).
On the 11th September 2003 the inaugural meeting of the Friends
Jubilee Country Park was held to encourage local people to get
in all sorts of ways to improve the Park for both wildlife &
people. The Friends work with, and under the supervision of, the
Countryside Officers from Bromley Council’s Countryside & Parks
