A Play Strategy has been written that sets out the vision for play and a design brief for the different spaces:

  • Westfield play area
  • Cygnet play area
  • Natural play landscapes
  • Outdoor fitness equipment.

Vision for Play

There is potential for play opportunities across all of Poole Park, with a destination play area at West field that will be completely redesigned to be the best in the local area.

Cygnet play area will continue to focus on play for younger children and will be redesigned and refurbished.

The new play areas will be based on innovation, providing a thematic link to its history and the local area. It will be fully accessible for all ages and abilities, encouraging informal social use between generations.

Opportunities for playable landscapes outside of the formal play areas will be encouraged, building on the heritage of climbing on leaning trees.

Play area improvements are scheduled for early 2020.
