Couple walking through Woodland Crescent

Green Space

Poundbury was designed with green space in mind. There are three main areas of parks which feature walking areas, sports area, children’s playgrounds and sport’s pitches. There are lots of areas for dog walking and walks to the neighbouring network of footpaths to the countryside, the historic Maiden Castle and local farms.

Dog walking is permitted in many of the green spaces.
