This area has many different climbing items, large sand pit, sea close by and a popular cafe van. There is a large car park and a short walk to Evening Hill and onto Shore Road beach. GREAT.

If you’re on holiday in the Poole area don’t miss out on this lovely area! There a super play park for younger children, plus a nice walk along the seafront right around to the quay if you wish. Plus free parking! (currently!).
