“Jubilee Gardens, Ely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The Jubilee Gardens in Ely are a beautiful green spot by the river which acts as the heart of the community during the summer months. It is here that the annual Eel Day is hosted and it is a popular spot during the summer Aquafest. There is often a brass band playing in the bandstand and it makes the entire river area extremely attractive.

“lovely green open space between river and town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Strolled through here after a walk along the river bank at the end of September. A fine day so there were parents with children using play equipment or just enjoying running free in a safe space. There were ducks and geese along the river bank and boats and canoes to watch while you were eating your sandwiches etc. An interesting piece of stone sculpture at the river end of the gardens. At the end of the season the gardens looked a bit neglected which is a shame as they are Jubilee Gardens. No sign of litter about the place though which is always good.
Must try to come and see it in spring.

“Pleasant park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We entered the garden from the river side after having taken a very pleasant boat trip along the river. We later entered from the road side as we walked down the the Cutters Inn for a our evening meal.

Very pleasant garden dedicated to the Queens Silver Jubilee - well looked after.

“A little Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The gardens are found along a busy street where the buildings give way to an open space looking down to the river. This time of year there are still narrown and other river boats to be seen, as well as the fishermen and lots of different geese on the rive. The gardens themselves are probabaly past their best as the flowers have died back so you can no longer smell their scent in the sensory part of the garden. However the walk through the garden is still a pleasent one, as is the walk along the river.
