Six playing fields in Greenhithe and Swanscombe have been nominated for FIT status - Fields in Trust - set up by the former National Playing Fields Association.
The town council of Swanscombe and Greenhithe Town Council has successfully applied for the recreational areas within the Town to be designated QEII Fields in Trust.
They believe it is the most fields to be nominated anywhere in Britain.
The Queen Elizabeth II challenge was to secure and protect 2012 outdoor sports and recreational facilities for local communities.
It will safeguard them from future development.
Town Mayor, Cllr Vic Openshaw said: "Along with the installation of commemorative benches in both Swanscombe and Greenhithe the Town Council felt that working with the Fields In Trust Scheme was an excellent way to not only celebrate the Queens Jubilee but also to secure these areas for the enjoyment and pleasure of future generations."
