An evening at Hollywood Bowl – Tower Park

With restrictions easing, we have been looking at activities we can all do as a family this half term. Ten pin bowling is great all round fun whether you’re with family or friends and we were invited to go to Hollywood Bowl, at Tower Park, Poole. We last visited for Sebby’s birthday back in 2016, so was hoping to see some improvement in all our skills. Of course, some things have changed and there are hand-sanitiser stations at the entrance and on each bowling station, screens to separate visitors and encourage social distancing, mask wearing is compulsory for adults and …

All new fun at Lemur Landings

We are big fans of Lemur Landings at Tower Park, Poole and at the beginning of the year we were intrigued to find that they had closed some of the centre off to be updated. We have been enjoying the facilities since Isaac was a baby and both Isaac and Eliza have enjoyed birthday parties there, with Isaac having a Phaser Party and Eliza having a Create a Bear Party and a My Little Pony Craft Party. Last month we were invited to the Lemur Landings launch party to get an exclusive look at what has changed and if it …

Available as a starter, main or with nduja sausage, as an upgrade, the Pennette …

Celebrating Sebby’s Birthday at Hollywood Bowl

We used to love going bowling and used to take Abbey, Callan and Kian frequently when they were younger, but we have never taken Isaac, Eliza and Sebby. Isaac was invited to a bowling party a few weeks ago but was sadly ill and ever since has been nagging us to take him, so we arranged to go as a treat for Sebby’s birthday. Our nearest bowling alley is Hollywood Bowl at Tower Park, Poole which has recently undergone a £3 million makeover. Boasting 24 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, they have moved and opened up the bar area, changed the pool …
