Friends of Coy Pond

Our History

This is a Brief history of the “Friends of coy Pond” and how and why we came about and a brief history of the Pond and Gardens


FRIENDS OF COY POND The group known as Friends of Coy Pond was formed in September 1998. It works together with the Borough of Poole, to enhance the area. In the near future the Friends plan to varnish the seats, to paint the railings, and restore the rockery to its former glory. This is Just the start! Coy Pond and the Bourne Stream must be cared for, so that we can pass them to the next generation to treasure and preserve. THE BOURNE STREAM “Bourne” is an alternative word for “small river”. This little stream, which has given its name to neighbouring Bournemouth, now starts its life in Poole. lt is likely that at one time the stream rose in  the Corfe Hills, west of Broadstone. Falls in sea levels over thousands of years, however, have affected the flow of water over the whole area.
