Poole park is a nice place for kids or just a stroll around the lake. Nice to watch the model boats but also a play area for the children and crazy golf.

Lovely huge park bordering Poole Harbour. Lovely walks, children's play park, ice skating, crazy golf, paddle boats, cafe, restaurant, ice cream parlour. Swans, geese and ducks in the water. Well worth a visit, something for everyone.

One of Pooles main attractions, well kept and lots of grounds to take a stroll for a couple of hours. Busy on a Saturday with runners and walkers but has a cafe, ice cream stalls and a restaurant to keep you occupied.
