The trust which runs Jubilee Gardens on the South Bank is inviting local people to comment on their experience of visiting the riverside park.

What do you think of Jubilee Gardens? Trust wants your views

It is nearly four years since Jubilee Gardens – first laid out during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 1977 – reopened after a 4 million makeover during the Diamond Jubilee year.

The park is managed by a trust made up of representatives of local residents' groups, business organisations and nearby landowners.

"The Jubilee Gardens Trust has been responsible for Jubilee Gardens for over three years now," said Ted Inman, chair of the trust.

"It is an incredibly busy space, open 24/7, and its management creates many challenges for a voluntary charitable trust.

"We want to know who is using the gardens and what they think of them.

We've been interviewing visitors to the gardens and local residents and we've now launched two web surveys, one for residents and one for local employees and businesses.

"We hope as many people as possible will find a few minutes to complete a survey (and are offering entry to a draw to win a pair of Champagne Flight tickets to the Coca Cola London Eye, with 5 pairs of fast track London Eye tickets to runners up)."

He added: "We're looking forward to lots of local feedback from the surveys to help us to plan for the future."
