Bourne Park

You are here

Bourne Park is a great open space with a newly refurbished play area and paddling pool, both of which officially re-opened in May 2018. With a beach theme, the play area features a pirate ship and sand castle multiclimb frame, whale and penguin rocks and a boat rocker. The surface is designed to look like the sea, with fish, crabs and a 3D shark.

The equipment is designed for disabled users with a roundabout suitable for wheelchairs and disabled swings.

The enclosed playarea is for children aged up to 12 years.

There is also a picnic area with several wheelchair accessible picnic tables.

The Sahara desert themed paddling pool is for children aged up to 8 years. It is open seven days a week (11am - 6pm) from the end of May until the beginning of September.
