Muscliff Park

Muscliff Park serves the Muscliff area in North Bournemouth. The park brings together people of all ages for health, happiness, socialising and activity.

The area is designated as public open space, which was awarded its first Green Flag in 2018.

Muscliff Community Centre can be found at the heart of the park, which has a well-attended children's nursery and it caters for parties and events, whilst hiring the rooms for adult education.

The park has a large open space, popular with dog walkers. There is a also a play park, with a zip wire for the children to enjoy, and tennis courts.

A petanque terrain was built in 2017, facilitated by the Muscliff-Whittaker Foundation - a charity set up in memory of a former local ward councillor which now has an active pentanque members club.
