Giant Picture Frame to celebrate a larger park!

28 July, 2017

To celebrate the opening of 6 hectares of additional parkland at Upton Country Park students from Bournemouth and Poole College, undertaking apprenticeships with Cobham plc, have designed & created a giant outdoor ‘picture frame.’ The frame beautifully captures the natural landscape and the views over Poole Harbour.

Located along the shoreline of Holes Bay the new area of dog-friendly open space offers stunning views. New pathways have been designed on higher ground to safeguard against predicted future flooding and lessen intrusion on the wetlands which provide shelter, habitat and food for internationally protected wading birds. It also includes meadows, wildlife watching areas, a place for families to access and enjoy the water and improved cycle links to Poole and Hamworthy.

See the project video below to discover how it was achieved.
