Why volunteer for gardening at Upton Country Park?

The award winning Upton Country Park includes over 130 acres of park land, shore line and formal estate gardens.  One of Poole’s favourite tourist destinations, the park is free to enter and offers a walled garden, tea rooms, woodland trail and vast areas of open space to explore.  Upton Country Park is served by excellent public transport links, including its own bus stop.

By volunteering at Upton Country Park, you will make a difference to a park loved by thousands and your efforts will be appreciated and enjoyed by its many visitors throughout the year.
