They are working hard to improve this area. The area was landscaped nicely a few years ago. The cafe is a pleasant place to sit outside to have a coffee and watch the world go by. The problem is what the council organise for the square - sometimes a carousel and a fruit stall! The Christmas market for the past... More

Recent visit to town and delighted to see the beautifully tended gardens, what a great place, lots of seating, relaxing even when busy, minutes from shops and restaurants on one side and a glorious beach on the other, we love Bournemouth!

Loved the fact that our visit coincided with the Food Festival, it was a great event. Wonderful food, drinks and entertainment. Surprise of the day, a 10 year old called Grace who got up to sing and was absolutely brilliant!

This is a very pleasant area between the shopping centre and beach/pier facilities. Very attractive gardens with a sprinkling of facilities including a very nice crazy golf - plenty of seating and well sheltered. There is a large balloon ride experience on offer but a bit pricy although pensioners and children get a discount to go with the certificate. We... More

We visit the Square each time we are in Bournemouth and there is always something going on! This time it was a food and live music with a drinks tent. Excellent! We enjoyed some great street food from the vendors. Never go to Bournemouth without checking out this place, especially in the evenings.

A pleasure to sit in. Places to eat and drink in or lay back and watch the world go by. A haven after a shopping session in the adjacent lanes

We enjoyed some special food displays that were set up in the Square during our stay with street food and some lively music. All added to the sense of holiday during our weekend in Bournemouth as a family.
