We run the Refreshment Kiosk and the Plant Centre, and organise an annual Plant &
Garden Fair in order to raise funds towards projects in the House and grounds. Our
achievements over the years are many and varied; most recently we have contributed
significant sums to the Walled Garden improvements & new Woodland Play Trail, and
have purchased an All Terrain Vehicle and Chipper for use in the Park.
Our News & Events
The Friends of Upton Country Park was established in 1976, at the same time as the
Park officially opened to the public. We are a voluntary group now numbering more
than 250 members, including 80 volunteers who work tirelessly to help improve and
enhance Poole’s only large public estate.
Donated to projects in the House & Park to date: £635,000
