A new play area, riverside path, boat house and jetty have been opened by the River Stour in Wimborne.

They all form part of Wimborne Riverside Park which has been financed from money raised by East Dorset District Council from planning obligations on the Charles Church Waters Edge development which has been built on the former Flight Refuelling site.

Having started out as a licensing arrangement between the District Council and Wimborne Dreamboats, the project grew into a partnership also including Poole Harbour Canoe Club, 2nd Wimborne Scouts and Wimborne Minster Town Council now working together to increase water and land based physical activities for local people.

Cllr Robin Cook who helped open the park, thanked all partners for their involvement in the project and made a special mention of Pat Hymers “whose vision, tenacity and pursuit provided the foundation for this new Riverside Park.”
