We run the Refreshment Kiosk and the Plant Centre, and organise House Tours and Open
Days 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
