Jubilee Country Park is a 62-acre (25 ha) public park in Petts Wood in the London Borough of Bromley. It is a Local Nature Reserve[1][2] and a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation.[3] It was purchased by Bromley Council to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 1977, and opened as a park in 1981.[4]

The park is part of an extensive wildlife corridor together with Petts Wood and Scadbury Park.[5] The London Loop goes through it.

The park consists of extensive areas of grassland and ancient woodland. The grassland has a large population of the rare corkyfruit water dropwort, while midland hawthorns are abundant in the woodland.[3] There is access from Southborough Lane, Blackbrook Lane and Tent Peg Lane.[6]
