  • A lovely little park (well it's a big park but only a few bits to play on well spread out). Access to toilets (could be cleaner) and a slightly overpriced coffee/icecream shop. We go regularly as ther...  more »
  • Great for sunny walks, picnics, kid's play area and lovely ice cream at the boat house cafe
  • A nice area which is clean and great for walking dogs. Much better during the summer when the cafe is open!
  • There is a free car park just off Llanfrechfa Way. A short walk through the open space and across the bridge brings you into the boating lake area. On public holidays in the summer the boat house opens for you to hire boats or paddle boats for the smaller children's pond (check with council when this is available). There are some nice walks around the pond and a separate small gravel path that takes you closer to the river. Plenty of seats dotted around for you to take a break. There is also a Cafe available for snacks and coffee (opening times vary). The lake has: Decked viewing area across the lake, children's play area, toilet facilities, fishing (licences will be required), visiting wild fowl including swans, canada geese, coots, mallards and I have seen (only once) a black swan pair. In the car park area are the starting points of some other river walks and at the North end of the park are some open areas for playing ball games. Dog friendly, but may not be allowed on playing fields (check with council area as no-go areas change).
  • Parking is a nightmare of there's an inclination of any sunshine.
  • Nice place to take the kids
