Poole Park

ActivitiesPlaces to visit

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.

Tranquil grounds

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.

Family fun

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.

Eat and drink

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.

Useful information

There are 3 free car parks in the park and free on road parking within the park itself. Poole Park is dog friendly

What our guests think

quote marksAbsolutely superb! Very speedy, efficient check in. Office couldn't do enough for you. Customer service top class. Our family party stayed in 3 dog friendly shepherds huts. Beautiful decor. Nice little self contained area for the 5 shepherd huts. Clean and modern toilet and shower facilities within less than 2 minutes. Large socially distanced communal washing up area. Large 2 acre area for exercising the dogs within 3 mins walk of shepherds huts. Couldn't fault this stay.quote marks Margaret, Apr 2021

quote marksWe 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 thisquote marks Beth, Nov 2020

quote marksGreat 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....quote marks Richard , Oct 2020
