Boscombe Chine Gardens
Boscombe Chine Gardens were developed originally from a ‘chine’ of heath and mire into a splendid Victorian garden, a central part of the then thriving Boscombe resort.
These gardens offer a lovely mix of scenery and activities with formal flower beds, large grassy areas for recreation, mini golf and a water-themed playground.
Squirrel Cafe and mini golf is owned and operated by BCP council. Having a cuppa here, or a game of crazy golf (or both!) supports your local parks and open spaces. We have recently opened our upstairs cafe, here you can purchase hot and cold drinks, freshly baked cakes and daily specials.
The Chine has been opened up by the removal of much of the tree canopy and native grasses have been sown to improve the habitat quality of the site.
Where there was an underused tennis court, is a popular ball court and on the site of the old boating pond is a water play area. The Boscombe mini-golf has been re-launched with disabled access (closed now for the winter 30th Oct until March 2018) and the Clock House Cafe overlooks it all!
The original features of the Gardens remain, two spa shelters, the lodge and the return of magnificent bedding displays.
