Boscombe Chine Gardens

What you can find at Boscombe chine gardens Green Flag site and how to get there

These gardens offer a lovely mix of scenery and activities with formal flower beds, large grassy areas for recreation, crazy golf and a water-themed playground. 

A variety of trees grow on the banks of the chine and the gardens provide habitats for a range of wildlife.  There is a wildlife quiz trail along the pathway all about the plants and animals found in the gardens.

How to find it

You can enter the chine gardens from the Christchurch Road heading towards Boscombe coming from Bournemouth central.  Or from the beach, the entrance is opposite Boscombe Pier.  You can see where it is on our map.
