Bordered on one side by the River Kennet, the Jubilee Field is a riverside open space just under 2 acres in total with benches, play equipment for children up to 12 years old and football goalposts. Dogs are welcome in the field but not in the children's playground.
As well as recreation, the field has played host in the past to a duck race, a balloon race, school fund raisers and summer fayres among other events. If you would like to discuss holding an event here please get in touch.
In 1930 the land was sold to Mrs Ethel Mary Dominy with an annual tithe of five shillings per acre. Mrs Dominy made a declaration of trust to create charitable status for the land in 1936 and upon her death in 1952 the Mayor and Aldermen of the Borough of Marlborough were appointed as trustees.
