Fisherman's Walk

Fisherman's Walk logo

A Green Flag winning park that leads from Southbourne to the cliff top and stunning beach views

This pretty little park will take you through a range of woodland, formal and informal planting to lead you to the lawns and ornamental pond before you reach the overcliff.

There is a small bandstand that's been there since the 1920s and is still host to various events in the park throughout the year.

The park is cared for by the Friends of Fisherman's Walk, they organise events and help us manage the area.

You can get there by heading towards Southbourne and enter the park either from the cliff top side or from Southbourne town.  Use our map to find Fisherman's Walk. 

There is a public toilet with accessible facilities at the north end of the park.

Fisherman's walk is between two of our nature reserves, Hengistbury Head and Boscombe and Southbourne Overcliff
