Hamworthy Park improvements 2018

NEW 29th August 2018

Paddling Pool refurbishment

In partnership with the Friends of Hamworthy Park

Hamworthy Park paddling pool is a historic feature of the park and has been a favourite destination for both local families and holiday makers for generations. The pool is open annually from May to September, with some seasonal variety.

The free facility which opened in 1931 last received extensive refurbishment in 1999, and in 2009 additional renovation was commissioned. However, the base and lining of the pool are damaged and will no longer be repairable in three to five years’ time.

Borough of Poole is pleased to be working with the Friends of Hamworthy Park (FoHP) who have already raised £25,000 towards the project, and continue to raise funds towards the cost of refurbishment. The majority of funding will be sought from Borough of Poole Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

The pool will be operational as usual to park users throughout the summer months, with construction commencing in September 2018.

Refurbishment of the paddling pool follows a number of other improvements at Hamworthy Park in the past 12 months, which have included new footpaths and signage, together with play and landscape improvements – details here
