Poole’s premier attraction, whatever the season. There’s something for everyone, so come along today and see what’s got people talking!  

Marvel at the grand Grade II* listed Georgian Mansion House, enjoy the wildlife along the shoreline, allow the children to blow off steam along the Woodland Play Trail, enjoy one of our regular events – or simply find a quiet spot to admire the amazing horticulture and beautiful botanical Walled Garden.

We offer so many things to do! From simply walking the dog to enjoying lunch in the Tea Rooms or admiring artworks in the Gallery Upstairs.

No admission fees, open all year round and great walking/cycling links (we even have our own bus stop!) what’s not to love?

The Park team are confident this is the best place to spend a day out in Poole, but don’t just take our word for it, take a look around and start planning your visit!

Celebrate with us!
