“Great Community Park”
Review of Hamworthy Park

Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2017 via mobile

Visited with family and considering it was the first week of the school holidays it was not as busy as expected, even on a warm sunny day.
There is a small car park which was full by 10am and has 2 disabled bays and good value charges compared to many in the area.
There is free on street parking in Branksea Avenue and there is an entrance to the park at the end of this road and is only a short walk and also has wheelchair friendly access.
Hamworthy Park is funded and run by a community group and they do a fantastic job!!
Large play areas and a paddling pool keeps children entertained in safety.
The beach is busiest along the area of beach huts and we found walking a little further along the promenade towards Poole was much quieter and pretty much had it to ourselves.
A very good cafe offers snacks as well as meals and hot and cold drinks and the all important ice creams!
I use a mobility scooter to get around and had no problem at all during our day long visit.
There are toilets and also disabled toilets needing a radar key to access.
Plenty of shells on the beach to collect too!
A great day out was enjoyed by the whole family.

This park makes a change for a walk though car park is smallish. Great for dog walks or taking small children as paddling pool and play area look fun and there is a small cafe for drinks and snacks.

Wasn't expecting much when I came here on a walk in April and was blown away. What a gem of a place. Gardening upheld by the community and volunteers with a children's paddling pool and a cafe. Traditional painted beach huts lining a sandy beach with wonderful views across to Brownsea Island and yachts in the bay. Great place for families with a lovely community.

We come here quite a lot with our 5 year old grandson..especially in the summer. It has a licensed cafe, different play areas for younger or older kids..and unusually a huge paddling pool ( which is going to be refurbished this year hopefully) AND right by the sea.. what else do you want
