A lovely place to bring children and dogs for a run around, It also has a large outdoor lido (very shallow) and a cafe. This park borders the sea so there are beach huts and a narrow strip of sand

We spent nearly 2hours at the park alone and managed to avoid the fun fair nearby. Lots of slides and climbing frame and the paddling pool looked great. Definitely recommend for kids under 10yo.

hi i suggest the hamworthy park face book page if you post on there some owners do rent out, not often as they all locals and use the huts but you may be lucky. Look for friends of hamworthy park on facebook
