Located in the centre of Poole on the shores of the UK's largest inland saltwater lake, Rockley's Poole Park centre is based in a purpose-built boathouse. Your group can be on the water within minutes of arriving on-site! Poole Park offers the ideal environment for young people to experience watersports either for the first time or for short taster sessions.
Our Poole Park centre specialises in introductory sailing, stand up paddle boarding, raft building and kayaking, enabling your group to work towards various badges and/or qualifications.
This centre is especially suitable for local groups that require activity sessions on a half-day or short session basis. The emphasis here is on participation, accessibility and ensuring good value for all.
Your group can shape and adapt your trip at Poole Park and choose from a variety of activities listed below.
