The Oak Lodge
Take some time out from exploring The Jurassic Coast and our beautiful surrounding area to visit our Coffee Lodge.
The café is now closed until Easter.
Opened on May 1st 2006 by District Councillor Mike Green, the Coffee Lodge offers a warm welcome and somewhere to relax with a range of coffees, teas and cold drinks together with a tempting selection of cakes, pasties, toasted sandwiches, cold sandwiches and light snacks.
Our centrally positioned play area’s have swings, climbing frames many new items, an embankment slide, and our pride and joy is a fantasticplay tower-this gives hours of play pleasure, all equipment is on a modern safety surfaces.
One play area is on our main park and the second one is on Beech Grove adjacent to the café and Oak mead Golf.
A quiet room is set aside in our amenity building for those wishing to watch TV or play pool or table football.
We also have a “borrow/lend” book section for you to browse.
Oakdown now offers a network of wifi repeaters around the Park. Oakdown has made a large investment into this project, having had many obstacles to jump its been a timely process, the wifi network is supplied via a satellite location on the Park, internet speeds from the local exchange just couldn’t cope with the demand, we are currently installing extra repeaters in areas where there is limited coverage, so be sure to check the availability before purchasing a voucher. (Due to Oakdown’s Rural setting signal strength can be intermittent)
Our shop is closed through the winter and will reopen in March.
Oak Mead Family Golf and Recreation Area is immediately opposite Oakdown to the west – the meadow which has the Field Trail leading to the Donkey Sanctuary on its northern boundary and our Victorian Reed Bed and Bird Hide in the south west corner. Oak Mead has been planned from the very start as a family attraction and opened for all to enjoy in Summer 2003. The course is a 9 hole par 3 and 748 yards long. Oakdowners receive a discount when showing their Park receipt! The Golf is open all year round and managed by the reception team when the café/shop is closed.
