Copy and Paste these numbers into google maps and it should come up with them.

Canyons: 50.747644,-2.018505
Bombhole: 50.768643,-1.95469
SMD's: 50.810789,-1.968917
Watchmoor: 50.850662,-1.840603 (I'm not quite sure where abouts the bike park is but it is somewhere around here)
Puddle Town: 50.739497,-2.37874 (Again I'm not quite sure but is around here)
Two rivers: 50.733413,-1.766292

Always worth checking out moredirt.co.uk and using their trail finder. Also use the friend finder on PB and find riders/spots in the area that way. Just remember, if it's a secret/private trail and they don't want visitors, respect their wishes (or offer them cake as a bribe).

There's some just around the corner from me in Parkstone. Haskell's rec bmx park, small council approved set. No one's ridden them in a while, so they need a bit of work.
I'm going to try and get hold of the council to see if they'll cut the grass back, and see what can be done changes wise down there.

Will have to check them out somewhen. How big are the jumps?

My Grandparents live between Poole and Bournemouth in the sort of Sandbanks/Canford Cliffs area. I'm always looking for somewhere to ride when I'm up there.

Although slightly irrelevant, the street at Poole Quay is pretty good.

There's 3 main lines 4ft 6ft and and 8ft one I think plus what looks like a small practice tabletop. They're quite short though, more bmx orientated, but hopefully be able to do what I want there.

50.73515,-1.948298 stick that in google maps for the location.

I'll try and get a few photo's tomorrow.

I had a look at these yesterday as I was passing that way. Your right about it being overgrown! I think the place need to be stripped back and rebuilt. The doubles look good but are unridable in their current condition. I guess nobody really rides there any more? There is a sign saying that it is maintained by the council but they don't seem to be doing a very good job - might send them an email.

I've just sent this to email to Poole council hopefully I'll get a reply soon.

Hi, I'm writing concerning maintenance at Haskell's Rec BMX park. It doesn't appear as anyone has really used this site for a while, the grass is taller than the jumps. And the jumps are in quite a state of disrepair, a few of us from the Pinkbike mountain bike forum would like to know whether there is any planned maintenance for here and whether we can rebuild or modify the existing jumps. Also what can and can't be done at the site.

Cool, hope you get a reply.
