Whitecliff and Harbourside Park have undergone a cool evolution in recent years, capitalising on the area’s boating credentials and desirable waterside location. Today this vibrant spot is popular with young families who benefit from good local schools and expansive open space for active children. The arrival of ‘Coast’ – the surf, ride and skate emporium - has contributed to the area’s hip, younger vibe.

Parkstone Yacht Club, East Dorset Tennis Club, Harbourside Park football fields, promenade cycle paths and modern playgrounds ensure an active lifestyle for locals. Nearby Poole Park offers yet more outdoor activities.
