Find your neighbourhood

The Creekmoor and Waterloo areas are highly populated residential areas within Poole. The Waterloo area contains a mixture of privately owned and council properties. This includes a large warden assisted housing development located within the centre of the community which houses members of the elderly community.

The Creekmoor area houses a majority of privately owned properties, bordered by a large natural heathland area and the striking Upton Country house, which is very popular with families, especially throughout the summer months.

Officers from the team regularly conduct patrols using cycles; especially across the heathland areas due to fire risks and the anti-social use of vehicles on the heath throughout the warmer times of the year.
