Nice place for a wander away from the croads of Bournemouth. Plenty for everyone with a great play area, mini golf and even basket ball court.

Lovely walk through the Chine to the beach with dogs. Lovely sandy beach with a Harvester Restaurant that overlooked the sea with breathtaking views and allows dogs in the bar area. a huge bonus!

It’s got crazy golf, a basketball court, wet play area for kiddies, small cafe and lots of flowers. It links Christchurch Road to Boscombe pier forming a pleasant walk. There is a separate cycle walk but most cyclists use the main route 😡😡😡
