The area is very popular with families and the local first school is very well regarded for younger pupils. Housing generally comprises post-war, executive-style family homes. The leisure amenities of Salterns marina and Parkstone Yacht Club are popular, and the area is well served by convenience retailers. Parkstone Golf Course forms an attractive boundary to the east.
