Broadstone Heath lies to the south of Broadstone, between Charborough Road and Fontmell Road and is a more informal heathland area between the playing fields and the cricket pitch. Car parking is available off the Lower Blandford Road and off Dunyeats Road. Access points to the site are as follows: two points to the north-west, adjacent to the children's playground; via a footpath from Westcroft Park; from a gap between properties in Fontmell Road and Whitchurch Avenue; via a footpath off Sharlands Close and three points from the formal playing fields.
Broadstone Heath possesses remnants of the extensive heathland which until recently covered the majority of the Poole Basin. It now consists of approximately 40% dry and wet heath, and 60% mixed woodland and is used principally for informal recreation and by dog-walkers.
