Welcome to Autumn 2016 in Jubilee Park. Our open air heated swimming pools are now closed for the season but our lovely gardens and play areas are open all the year for you to enjoy.
Announcing our longest swimming season ever in 2017! By popular demand and thanks to the success of new regular ways of raising money for the park and the support of residents, businesses and visitors, we are thrilled to be able to offer 6 extra weeks of swimming next year- from Easter to October!
Watch this space and our social media for full details later this year!
PLAYPARK APPEAL PROGRESS It may still look good on top thanks to the hard work of our staff, but our 2016 annual independent inspection shows that some equipment in Jubilee Park childrens playground must soon be replaced at a total cost of £40,000. All donations received over the next few months will be put towards this loved and well used community resource for local children and visitors. We have so far raised enough match funding, thanks to generous public support, to at least apply for a grant, but it’s a highly competitive market with less and less money available, so we are not complacent. Please give generously to help us keep our playpark open for seasons to come!
MEMBERS, SUPPORTERS AND VOLUNTEERS keep us going. We are entirely self supporting and run as a charity by our members with no public funding. There are loads of ways you can support us and we’re always looking for volunteers to give us hand for everything from gardening to handing out leaflets.

A Message From The Manager
A very warm Welcome to Jubilee Park
2015 saw further developments in the running of the park. The Friends organisation, Friends of Jubilee Park, merged with the charitable company that runs this , Jubilee Park Woodhall Spa Ltd to form a single organisation to support and run the park.
Our greatest strength, however, is our members who support us in so many ways and with the Trustees they vote in, help shape policy. In 2015 membership numbers grew, but we’re always looking for more. It’s free and you only need to join once – local residents and those working in Woodhall Spa all qualify. Click……for more details and an application form.
2016 is a key year for us. For the first time we don’t receive a penny from any local authorities and have to be entirely self- supporting. Since reverting to local ownership four years, Jubilee Park has gone from strength to strength. The caravan park and swimming pool pay their way, but we need to keep raising extra money to cover the maintenance sand improvements for the children’s play area, gardens, car parks and conveniences as well as accumulating funds for larger refurbishment projects. This year we need to carry out urgent work on our iconic bandstand.
There are many ways visitors, local people, organisations and businesses can support us- click here to download our latest supporters packs.
In the meantime, the Trustees- all volunteers- are pursuing grants and funding for the much needed refurbishment of the main buildings which will include additional health and fitness facilities to bring in all-year-round income. Anyone with experience of this long and tortuous process is more than welcome to help!
Finally, a heartfelt thanks to those unpaid, hard working and often unsung ‘heroes’ who help us in so many ways to ensure any money we do have goes as far as possible.
Come and see us again in 2016, we look forward to meeting you!
We need YOUR support to help us continue to thrive- click here for your 2016 supporters pack!
Visitors to Jubilee Park please drive slowly around the park. Some pot holes have appeared and are being sorted by the road owners as soon as possible!
