Upton Country Park is a delightful mix of parkland and woods around Upton House on the edge of Poole Harbour. The Azaleas in Springtime are not to be missed.

Courses of 0.6, 1.5 and 2.2km are available on the map. The shortest course is in a large field with good visibility, excellent for supervising a youngster.

Other Things to do in the Area

Directions: Approach Poole from the west or leave to the east on the A35 and follow the brown signs to Upton Country Park. BH17 7BJ. Free parking (in 2016)
