Moors Valley Country Park is an award-winning location 10-miles north of Bournemouth. A popular, buzzing site, Moors Valley Country Park welcomes around 750,000 visitors each year and with acres of forest and park jammed pack with things to do, there’s something for everyone.

There are two adventure play areas - one for older children with a zip slide, space net, climbing boulder and a fortress of towers and crossings and a younger children’s area with gentler slides and swings.
