A Mother’s Day Stroll around Whitecliff Park

We are so lucky living where we do in Dorset as there are lots of lovely places to take the kids to enjoy the great outdoors.

We are busy teaching Isaac and Eliza to ride their bikes at the moment so are concentrating on flat spaces where they can cycle with confidence and I don’t have to do too much pushing.

This weekend we loaded the bikes, kite, sky spinner and kids into the car and set off for Whitecliff in Poole. Whitecliff is home to one of the kids favourite parks, affectionately known as the “Helicopter Park” thanks to a large helicopter themed play frame. As well as the fenced play area, there is also a large recreation ground which borders Poole harbour with good views of Brownsea Island and a long, wide concrete path to practice cycling on.


The kids raced ahead on their bikes whilst Sebby decided very quickly that he didn’t want to ride on his scooter, preferring Daddy’s shoulders instead. Eliza spotted a window of opportunity and swapped her bike for the scooter as she could keep up with Isaac that way.


Of course once we reached the park the kids all insisted on parking up and heading inside to play.


Play equipment put through its paces, we then ventured out of the play area to test out our new sky spinner, which is basically a frisbee which can do tricks. I am not sure we actually mastered any tricks, concentrating more on how to throw it so it reached the next person!


We then headed back to the car full of fresh air and ready for dinner.

    aw we did very similar although it was really cold but we took a long walk and then finished off at the park across the road from us

  2. What a lovely family outside, I love seeing such posts they just make me happy. I wish I had learned to ride the bike but instead i bailed lol

  3. Ahh this looks like such a WONDERFUL family day out – that frisbee thing sounds amazing!?! Never heard or seen anything like that before, what kind of tricks can it do? Spending time outside as a family is so super important – what a lovely, lovely place to visit.

    Consider yourself to be an official Whitecliff ambassador! Looks great and anywhere that you teach your kids to ride a bike for the first time will always be special to you 🙂

    I have to admit Cornwall really doesn’t do parks very well, there is one in Wadgebrige and that’s about it. This one looks perfect, right by the coast, great equipment and flat paths for cycling and scooting. It does make life easy when you have somewhere like this to visit, free family fun at it’s best. They will soon be scooting and cycling off ahead of you. Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    What a lovely day out … it’s amazing how much you can do just in the park for the day. Hopefully we’ll get more sunny days like this so there are more chances to get out and about.

  12. I do love Dorset and try to visit as often as we can. That park looks lovely! We don’t have anything like that nearby, unless we drive for at least half an hour to get to one 🙂

  13. Since having our little girl I really treasure sunny days spent in a nice park. We are very lucky to live in Aberdeenshire, very close to several beautiful places like the one you are sharing with us in this post. We really make the most of them!!! 🙂
