Boscombe Chine Gardens Cafe and Mini Golf

Boscombe Chine Gardens Cafe and Mini Golf logo

A Green Flag site with a mix of attractive scenery and fun activities.

Boscombe Chine Gardens has formal flower beds, large grassy areas for recreation, mini golf and a water-themed playground.

A variety of trees grow on the banks of the chine and the gardens provide habitats for a range of wildlife. There’s a wildlife quiz trail along the pathway, all about the plants and animals found in the gardens.

Boscombe Chine Gardens Café and mini golf is an 18-hole course set in picturesque gardens with an upstairs café serving hot and cold drinks, freshly baked cakes and daily specials. The café has stunning views of the gardens and mini golf course below.

The café is run by The Parks Foundation.

Well-behaved dogs on a lead are allowed on the mini golf course.

If you’re coming from central Bournemouth, the entrance is on Christchurch Road heading towards Boscombe. From the beach, the entrance is opposite Boscombe Pier.
