Poole Park is an urban park and surrounds the UK’s largest inland saltwater lake. On a sunny day it’s the perfect place to spend quality time together and make the most of the great outdoors. The park is free to enter and there are lots of activities to fill an afternoon or the whole day if you choose.
There are 110 acres of parkland providing plenty of green space to relax and unwind. Take a walk around the beautiful grounds or spend some time sitting and enjoying the scenery. Admire the beautiful flowers in the Rose Garden or find a tranquil spot in the newly created Quiet garden.
If you’d prefer something a little more active why not challenge the family to a game of crazy golf? Or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous sign up to a beginners watersports session with Rockley Watersports. It’s also possible to hire pedalos, book a tennis and make use of the outdoor gym equipment.
Poole Park is an excellent place to visit for families with young children. There are two adventure play areas with climbing frames, swings, roundabouts and other pieces as well as an indoor soft play. Younger members of the family will enjoy feeding the ducks and swans or running around the grounds to let off some steam. There’s plenty of space for scootering and cycling too.
Enjoy a picnic on the expansive lawns or treat yourself to a bite to eat at one of the cafes or restaurants. If the weathers hot cool down with an ice cream from the ice cream parlour.
There are 3 free car parks in the park and free on road parking within the park itself. Poole Park is dog friendly

We booked for two nights in our Motorhome and ended up staying six nights. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Shower blocks were kept clean and water was lovely and hot. Bus stop directly outside site going to Poole and Swanage on the he number 40 bus route. Worth getting a return ticket to save money Mo, Oct 2021
We had a simply fabulous time at South Lytchett Manor last month. We were not sure about camping in October but the site is well insulated, the playground kept our kids well entertained and the facilities were super clean and comfortable. We loved having a shop onsite and there are water taps and electricity points in abundance.. we have stayed at a number of sites and couldn’t recommend this Beth, Nov 2020
Great campsite, really friendly and polite staff. Very clean facilities and felt ‘safe’ with all the hand sanitizer and clear signage, highly recommend - we’ll probably book one of the huts next time.... Richard , Oct 2020
