Potterne Park, Potterne Way off Verwood Road, BH21 6RS.
Open park of playing fields with surfaced paths all around the edge, a stream and wooded margin.
There is also a 'trim trail' (open air gym equipment), fenced-off children's playground (no dogs in that bit) and tennis courts at the park. For a longer-distance walk the surfaced track extends across the nearby golf course and through to Moors Valley woodland.
There has been a problem with some people not picking up after their dogs here which has understandably led to some fines, the playing fields are in frequent use for sports and many children use the park, the paths are also suitable for wheelchair & pushchair use.
Dorset Dogs enjoyed holding the Dorset Dogs Festival here in 2012, it's a great place for dogs!
