The Pavilion Theatre and Ballroom is a concert hall in Bournemouth. It opened in 1929 and has been redesigned several times since.
The area around Bournemouth Gardens was granted permission by the owners in 1859 to incorporate a public pleasure ground. Discussions for a fixed entertainment venue took place during the 1880s, and as part of the 1892 Bournemouth Improvement Act, the council were granted £20,000 for constructing a pavilion in the gardens, which could accommodate a municipal orchestra. These plans were continually blocked by local residents who felt that licensed premises for drinking were immoral. A fixed plan for a venue in the gardens was approved in 1908, but saw further delays and was consequently postponed until after World War I.

It's a nice place. Shame they don't often use the bad stand down there. Though I am glad they took down that hot air balloon; I always thought it was a danger hazard - what if while up in the air the lines suddenly snap or the balloon bursts?! But on a brighter note; it is where they hold the ice skating rink, and most recently the alpine bar and lounge. It was a really nice place! But like I said, it's a nice place. Maybe when we hold a music festival we can use the lower gardens along with other places in Bournemouth to hold music venues.

Not big but a mixed use gardens that makes up part of the Bournemouth Square Winter Wonderland experience- lights in the trees, alpine themed bar with hot and cold drinks, ice rink and iced bowls! In winter, mini golf and sitting on wet benches isn't really seasonally useful. But, the garden landscaping, the little river offering another bank to walk along or take a seat to watch the world go by and the tiered plant garden are very pretty. Adds interest to the commercial centre. Useful to have public toilets too.

Really nice place to visit during the summer and the aviary seems to be a pretty unique feature full of all sorts of varieties of birds. The park it's self is a really popular place and really well kept. There is often live music here in the summer.

Would recommend visiting here. Lovely park with a little stream running along one side, very pretty. Lots of squirrels running around. There is a small aviary, a couple of little cafe's and at the moment there is an ice rink in the middle of the park.

beautiful scenery, lots of attractions. Very easy access from anywhere in Bournemouth by bus or walking, great in the summer for picnics. Easy access to the beach and cinema, plus plenty of eating locations surround the park.

Very beautiful gardens with an Avery with all sorts of parrots an buggies and other birds. In the winter you have the Christmas market complete with outdoor ice rink. A nice place to chill out with ample benches and places to buy cold drinks and ice cream. It's also very near both the beach and the main shopping street. Sadly however there are A lot if homeless people begging so be aware of your personal items.

Nice but nothing extraordinary. Birds aviatory definitely needs some financial support. Generally I guess everything looks better during summertime not a winter when I was visiting

Very well kept lower central and upper gardens with quite a few seats and park benches and places to get snack food and ice creams and near to shops as well as pier and superb beaches.

A great walk from Bournemouth Town centre to the beach passing the mini golf in the gardens. In the summer bands play music from the Bandstand creating a great atmosphere.

Lovely parks where you can either have a picnic in the park, get an ice cream or play a round of crazy golf. Ideally located close to a few carparks, the shopping centre, restaurants and the beach. There are also free public toilets that you can use in the park
