The Silver Jubilee Jetty is located at the intersection of Jalan Pekeliling (formerly Circular Road) and Jalan Maharaja Lela (formerly Birch Road). It is at one end of the Raintree Walk, further from the Zoo.
The Silver Jubilee Jetty was constructed to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the reign of King George V of England (grandfather to Queen Elizabeth II). The jetty was completed in 1936, and was often used as a starting point for sporting events when Malaysia was Malaya, a colony under the British Empire. The jetty is a fully functional jetty with steps to the water’s edge and presumably was used as a starting point for boat rides across the lake in its early days. The views of the lake from this vantage point is one of the better ones along the lakeside.
The Silver Jubilee Jetty Today
Today, the jetty is no longer used but is preserved as a monument to a time long past. It is a popular photography spot and the roundabout with the large raintree close by is a very popular hangout spot.
