Walk description:

The Walk starts from where you turn into The Quay from West Quay Road. On the corner of this junction, on the right hand side are public toilets. You will need a Radar Key for the disabled toilet.

Walk past the toilets along the pavement. The water way will be on your right. Keep walking and on your left hand side you will see several public houses and eating facilities. You will also walk by the Tourist Information Board.

When you get to the mini roundabout. Continue walking straight on. When you get opposite the Thistle Hotel there is a very small slope up a paved pavement. Go along here and then turn right almost immediately.

Continue along the pavement which has a few small up and down slopes, and you will come to the Lifeboat Museum. Continue along the path and you will walk past the Fisherman Permit Parking area. Walk past this and you will come to a crossroad in the path.

Walk straight on, and you will walk between two low walls. Continue walking straight on, and follow the sign for Harbour side park,car park and toilets. Shortly you will arrive at a pay and display car park. If you wish you could park here, and start the walk from here.

From here continue walking straight on until eventually you will come to White cliff Dog walk. There is a small play area here, but at present it is closed. From here continue walking all the way to the end of the path until you get to Parkstone Bay Marina.


From here you need to turn around and retrace your steps.



Additional notes:

This is a lovely walk from Poole Quay to Parkstone Bay Marina. It is suitable for Buggies and wheelchairs. The terrain is very good.

There are several toilets and eating facilities at the begining of the walk. There are also several benches all along the walk if you wish to have a picnic or wish to stop and look at the view.
