Transforming Travel in Kings Park

Work to create a new sustainable travel route between Bournemouth and Christchurch has begun with the construction of a new raised toucan crossing on Harewood Avenue near Kings Park.

If you're planning to visit Kings Park Nursery we recommend coming in from Boscombe or Iford roundabout and accessing the park from the main Christchurch Road entrance.

Kings Park will see upgraded cycling and walking lanes as well as upgraded lighting for added safety and security as part of these works.

Water play facilities
Since government moved to step 4 in the roadmap out of lockdown, our parks and leisure teams have been working hard to get our water play facilities across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole reopened safely. While most have now been reopened, we will be reopening Hamworthy Paddling Pool and Redhill Paddling Pool as soon as possible, once they are ready and safe to reopen.
