The Great Field

The Great Field is the largest area of green space in Poundbury. The field is easily accessible from both Poundbury and the older parts of Dorchester, with direct access from Damers First School. The field already features sports pitches, a multi-use games area and outdoor gym equipment.

In 2020 significant work is being undertaken on the Great Field, including

  • planting of over 400 trees and some 26,000 shrubs and hedging plants
  • enhancement of further wildflower areas
  • opening of the Great Field Pavilion – providing a cafĂ© for visitors and the headquarters of a superb Dorset based charity (the Alcohol Education Trust)
  • provision of a magnificent new play park, including a Parkour area
