Every summer you have the same problem. You just don’t know what events are happening in the park and when. You’d like to go, but you always miss them.

Not this summer!

Get all the Hamworthy Park events info in one place. Now, you can plan for the summer and make sure you don’t miss a thing!

BCP Paddling Pool Opening Party – to be announced 

The date is still unconfirmed at this point, but it’s going to be a party to remember. A chance for the kids to get in the newly refurbished paddling pool – this is what the whole project has been about.

More info as we get it.

Park Cafe Summer BBQ – weather permitting

We are very excited about this one! The Park Cafe is putting on a BBQ this summer. On busy, sunny days, the chefs will sizzle up a storm – can’t wait to see the new BBQ menu! Check out their Facebook.

FOHP Annual Park Fete – 11.00am, Saturday, July 6th.

The traditional annual fete will be full of children’s rides, music, a children’s entertainer and a variety of stalls – including local community groups. A great day out and definetly one for the diary.

Poole Town Rowing Regatta – 10.30am, Sunday, 7th July.

Rescheduled after high winds in June. This annual event is really quite a spectacle. Watch teams battle it out for supremacy on the water. High-speed racing and nail-biting finishes guaranteed.

FOHP Produce Sale – 10.30am, Sunday, September 22nd.

The produce sale marks the end of the summer season in the park. On sale are locally produced vegetables and fruit along with delicious homemade jams, chutneys and pickles. My favourite is the cherry jam!

Any donations of your surplus produce welcome.

What, no fun fair?

What about the children’s fun fair, I hear you cry? The children’s one that usually comes in August?

It’s not confirmed as yet. Watch this space!

And don’t forget….

FOHP Wednesday Volunteers – every Wednesday, 9.30-12.00

If you fancy some fresh air, light exercise and the chance to meet community minded people, then come and join the Wednesday volunteers. Help with a bit of litter picking, gardening and other light maintenance tasks. Just turn up!
