- The park first appeared on the public radar in 1951 when it was the site of the Festival of Britain’s prime building, the Dome of Discovery
- When these temporary buildings were dismantled the site became a car park. It remained so until 1977 when a park was laid out for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.
- The gardens underwent a transformation in 2012 to celebrate HRH Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee - the Queen subsequently reopened the gardens in October that year.
- Within the park you can find a large adventure playground for children up to 11 years old - the playground is open until dusk every day.
- Jubilee Garden's neighbours include an ogre and several sharks as SEA LIFE London Aquarium and Shrek's Adventure! London are located next door in County Hall.

Oxo Tower Wharf
The Oxo Tower has been a Thames-side landmark since the 1930s. During this time, it had many owners including the Liebig Extract of Meat Company who produced the iconic Oxo Cube.
After becoming derelict in the 1970s, the building and surrounding land were bought by Coin Street Community Builders and developed into the thriving mixed-use neighbourhood it is today.
