Dazzling dragons and damsels that fly can be found in The Great Heath and here in the park.  They haven’t changed since the time of the dinosaurs!

Activities for all ages, get up close to real wildlife, get your face painted, discover the history and dragons of our heaths, have a go at arts, crafts and more at beautiful Upton Country Park, Poole BH17 7BJ.

Here be dragons!  The Great Heath is home to some very dragon-like reptiles but the rare sand lizard won’t hurt you so our knights of the heath protect them instead! 

Join us for owls, moths, wildlife gardening, art, Crafty Dragon’s Den, face painting, traditional woodcraft demos and lots more!  This is a day for everyone, so bring the whole family.

To celebrate St George’s Day and our amazing heathland dragons, there will be a prize for the best-dressed knight, dragon or damsel!
