This area is a mixture of heath and woodland, between the playing fields and cricket pitch, with footpaths and superb views over Poole.

Types of habitat
Broadstone Heath still has the remains of the extensive heathland that used to cover most of the Poole Basin. It now consists of approximately 40% dry and wet heath and 60% mixed woodland.
What to see
Common woodland species; occasional sightings of the Dartford warbler in the small area of heath. You may spot the more common reptiles on this site.
There is limited parking at the end of Charborough Road.
Car parking is available off the Lower Blandford Road and off Dunyeats Road.
Your dog must be on a short lead during bird breeding: 1 March to 31 July every year, and when livestock is near. Remember to keep your dog under close control and to pick up after it.
