The equipment at Whitecliff Play Area is designed for children of all ages and features arguably the largest and most expensive bit of play equipment in Poole: the awesome 6m high Multi Activity Tower! This majestic wooden unit boasts numerous exciting play features including 3 slick slides of different lengths, including a wavy one! Plus various elements are linked by monkey bars, 2 wobbly ravine bridges and a long plank bridge. Then there's a rope ladder, a vertical scramble net, an arched climber, fireman's poles and play panels: something to challenge and excite all age groups and great for gross motor skills.
For younger users, a way cool helicopter features climbing, sliding and role play, and charmingly reflects the character of the region as host to the air ambulance landing area. A large space for sand play has also been installed with neat log edging to retain the sand however wild they get; inside are mini sand diggers and a role-play boat for toddlers so even if you don't have a bucket and spade along you can seriously interact with some matter.
Protection from the sun, wind or rain is supplied by a large roof on the central tower which incorporates decks at various levels (the highest is a whopping 3m) and a cool multi directional viewing mirror: if you stand beneath it, look up and you'll be able to see the surrounding area reflected in 4 mirrored panels - the best hide and seek or what!?
