QUEENS PARK - A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK
Thu 08 Sep 2016
We asked one of our colleagues, Leigh, to tell us what she likes about Queens Park, Bournemouth and here is what she said:-
"It’s a wonderful green and tree-lined location brilliant for families! The area is centred around Queens Park itself – much more than a golf course, with acres and acres of open ground ideal for walkers and joggers, an amazing ‘castle style’ children’s play park and a large pond for feeding the ducks. Fantastic for the dogs too with local walkers regularly getting together for a good long walk around the park. As well as The Terrace Bar at the clubhouse, there are lovely local cafes for coffee afterwards too!
For golf lovers the 18 hole golf course is a great attraction. You can ‘pay and play’ or take out a season ticket. The course is over 6000 yards long and meanders through open parkland, heath and woodland areas for a very picturesque round. Various competitions are held throughout the year.
Local shops are on the doorstep in Charminster Road – butchers, bakers and many more together with an array of multi cultural restaurants and bars, something to suit every palate!
Castlepoint shopping centre is a short drive away. With its large stores such as M&S, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Boots, Waterstones and lots of fashion stores and its free parking too!
In minutes you can be out of town and on the dual carriage way to Southampton/London or even nicer, having a picnic in the New Forest!
Queens Park is A GREAT FRIENDLY COMMUNITY with outstanding schools including selective Grammar Schools for boys and girls, Queens Park Academy (OFSTED rated Outstanding) not to mention the fantastic independent Park School for children aged 2-11 years.
As well as the park itself, there are numerous other local leisure facilities including Winton Recreatin Ground, Strouden Park and several BH Live sports centres.
I live and work in the local area, so if there is anything you need to know about Queens Park, Bournemouth, you know who to ask!
