Lovely walking around the lake and grounds amongst the Swans, ducks and geese. We took a bag of porridge oats to feed them and soon got eaten up.
Enjoyed watching the radio controlled model yachts being raced by a club.
A couple of people were pedalling around the lake in the hired 'swan' pedalos.
Didn't use the cafe apart from using the toilets which were clean and had step stools for the youngsters at the sinks (beware very hot water each time, but it did have warning signs)
Some lovely plants and wild flowers.

A well used play area for children .

We visited Poole Park whilst down from up north visiting our friends. We walked round the lake, had a lovely picnic, the kids played on the fab playgrounds. Both playgrounds were very fun, lots to do and play on! There were also pedalos, tennis courts, crazy golf, 2 cafe's and 2 ice cream stalls. Lovely day out, thoroughly enjoyed it :)

Poole Park is such a fantastic and privileged place to visit and live near.

Very lovely site and great walk around and I’m sure the restaurants on the site will be fantastic.

Will be amazing when the train system is rebuilt and running and will be loved as it first start in the 1940’s

We booked our pedalo for 11.30am, they were brought in from the middle of the lake at 11.25 and were still being sorted out at 11.45. The young staff were unhelpful and generally rude. The pedalo’s were filthy. Not the best experience, however the park is beautiful, large screen showing movies was free. The children’s play park is excellent.

We booked the Crazy Golf for four of us and had a great time and a good price then walked around Poole Park which was absolutely beautiful. They had different boating activities which looked like fun together with cafes to grab a bite to eat.
We would definitely go to Poole Park again.

I loved Poole Park and in the past it has been a reaaly good family day out ( as I reviewed in the past), but there have been, and are ongoing, changes. The little railway is over grown and still was not working when we visited last week. In fact I would say by looking at the state of it it has not been working for a very long time. The crazy golf is still there but they have taken away the little putting green, and to be perfectly honest I an not sure how long they will keep the crazy golf as it looks a little tired. I beleive they are redoing the main road that runs through it at present and were removing quite a few trees, so it is going to look very different in the future. I would not reccommend it now, as I have done in the past, as we feel it has lost its charm, and I believe it is going to lose some more to come. I will watch with interest and in time review again.

Visited Poole Park today for the first time in years. The park is looking stunning with all the beautiful trees and flowers. It’s been updated with two play parks, two cafes and the pedalo’s are still there along with kayak and paddle board hire. Such a pleasant park to wonder around.
Downside, the train is no longer in operation.🙁

Poole Park has been a favourite family outing for generations of our family. The setting and activities have never changed and still one of the best parks.
Reason for rating is the state of the old toilets at top end by the play area. One of the ladies toilets was unusable as blocked and filthy. The other was not very clean. There was no hand sanitiser despite the notices outside about COVID and distancing. The floors were filthy. As these are adjacent to a children's playground hope more is done to keep these clean.

A lovely park ideal for us to take the dog for a morning walk. Mix of short and long lead walk options.

Enjoyed a cup of tea from the cafe and they gave us water for the dog too.

Lots of space, kids at area too
