Merley Ways Play Area

This is one of our oldest play areas which is situated on the northern edge of Poole  in a very picturesque and quite setting close to the river Stour overlooking Wimborne.

The equipment consists of a stand alone slide, a "buck-about" four person springer,  junior and cradle swings. This playground is suitable for children up to 14 years of age.

There is a large open space suitable for picnics and seating has been provided to allow parents or carers to enjoy these facilities while their children enjoy themselves.

The play equipment in this play area was manufactured and installed to comply with current safety standards applying at the time of installation and all items of equipment are provided with a safer surface where required.

The play equipment and the immediate surrounding areas are inspected on a regular basis. An annual inspection is also carried out by an independent qualified organisation that prepares a safety audit and a report to enable the Council to plan long term maintenance and renewal.

Access is from two points on Merley Ways and from the Stour way footpath, car parking is available on Merley Ways.
