Dorset Echo: Former Dean Park Cricket Pavilion Transformed As Training Venue

A FORMER cricket pavilion with a spectacular view of Bournemouth’s old Dean Park ground has been reopened as a venue for training and conferences.

Dean Park Training will be both a base for coaching people who work in early years education and a venue for hire to businesses.

The business has been set up by Dean Park Day Nursery and Park School, which bought the former Dorset and Hampshire cricket ground in 2014.

The pavilion, which has been out of use since the 1980s and was boarded up, looks out over 6.5 acres of sports fields. It has been refurbished and renamed the Gallery, which can accommodate around 40 people with its main venue plus breakout rooms.
