Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Park (Churchill Park)
La Route de la Baie, St Brelade, JE3
The Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Park (Churchill Park) is a small Park situated in St Brelade’s Bay on the east coast of Jersey. Land for the Park was purchased in 1961 and construction began in 1965.
There are formal 'Seafront Gardens' bordering the seafront promenade with fine lawns, formal bedding displays and a fountain and pond. This particular area is an extremely popular spot for visitors to Jersey as the many benches provided look over the beach and provide a great opportunity to sit and relax and catch the sun.
The main part of Churchill Park nestles into the granite escarpment that forms the Bay. Here we find less formal gardens and instead there are terraced borders of mixed shrub and herbaceous planting, well managed lawns and bedding displays. There is also a dry garden which is planted with various tender plants which are able to survive in the warm microclimate of the Park. The upper slopes of the Park are found as mature mixed deciduous and coniferous woodland.
One of the main features of the Park is an artificial waterfall which runs down a small granite cliff.
Churchill Park is home to a good population of red squirrels and it is normally possible to see them during the months they are active. There is also a small population of green lizards – Jersey is the only place in the British Isles with a native population of this lizard.
