Jubilee Park is located in Gladstone Road, Richmond (Tasman, New Zealand). It has been the home of rugby football in the area since the 19th Century. Jubilee Park has also hosted a range of other sports codes including croquet, hockey, cricket, tennis and soccer; and regional competitions between local fire brigades. 

Being the only public park in the borough for some time, it was also used for non-sporting events, such as Lord Plunket's vice-regal tours.

In the early 1940s Lime and oak trees were planted to commemorate the European pioneers of the district. In the late 1940s the Richmond Sports Association was formed to raise funds for and oversee the building and management of a combined sports complex on the grounds.
