It's "A little piece of Paradise in Poole" :-) Super walking trails to meander along with the family or alone, dogs are very welcome too. Also a little cafe and patio area for whatever takes your fancy to eat and drink. Free parking and entrance (a donation is greatly appreciated if possible, but not compulsory, but you would be mean... More

A true family venue with lots to do and see. Regular events across the year, extensive grounds to explore and enjoy, a great tea room, plant nursery and Art gallery with exhibits regularly changed. The Christmas Fair is well worth a visit.

This is a gem of a place on the outskirts of Poole, reaching down to Holes Bay and has views onto and beyond Poole Harbour. There are many and varied walks through the estate as well as formal gardens, childrens areas, picnic spots, plant sales, cafe and an Upstairs Art Gallery where you can browse beautiful works of art done...

Upton Country Park has recently been extended, and more things to do added. Some activities have a small charge, but parking is free and there is so much to enjoy and indeed see/smell in these extensive gardens. It will improve further as the extended area matures, but well worth a visit at any time of year. See http://www.uptoncountrypark.com/to-do.html
