Brynmill is a suburb of the City and County of Swansea, Wales, UK. It lies about two miles (3 km) to the west of Swansea city centre. It is a residential area forming the southern part of the Uplands electoral ward. As it is close to Swansea university, many students choose to rent rooms here during term time. Aside from the student population, this is a fairly middle-class area.Brynmill is approximately bounded by Swansea Bay to the south; Brynmill Lane to the west; Glanbrydan Avenue to the north; Bryn-y-Mor Road to the north-east; and Guildhall Road to the south-east. Brynmill can be further subdivided between the upland area of Brynmill proper and the lowland area of St. Helen's close the sea.Brynmill is situated on hilly terrain. Many of the properties are built on slopes. Property subsidence is a problem here. Property prices here are around the national average. Council tax rates here are quite high. The area offers convenient access to the city centre shopping area via the Oystermouth Road to the South, and Sketty Road to the North. However, these roads are rather congested during peak hours.Local amenitiesThe parish church of St Gabriel's (Church in Wales/Anglican) was consecrated in 1889. It is situated on Bryn Road. St. Benedict's Roman Catholic Church is on Sketty Road. The local primary schools are Brynmill Primary School and Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Bryn-y-mor.The St Helens Rugby and Cricket Ground is located to the South of Brynmill.

  • Absolutely beautiful to walk through. Lots of birds to see flying and swimming about. Gorgeous on a sunny day. There’s a little kiosk that sells drinks/ice cream as well as grain that you can feed to the birds that’s safe for them to eat. Toilets too, including disabled toilets. Accidentally wandered through here last weeks and it was really really lovely
  • A lovely little park. It has a safe and contained play area with swings, slides etc for the younger children and a nice flat patch of ground adjacent to it suitable for the older kids to play football etc. It also has an indoor information/wildlife building and separate shop catering for teas,coffees, ice creams etc. To cap it off there is a lake with ducks and swans so the kids can feed them with suitable feed available from the shop. All in all a gem.
  • Great for kids. Beautiful, old trees and a nice lake with lots of birds. The cafe keeps me from giving it 5 stars. Considering that they mainly serve children it should offer healthy food and drinks, not just cheap sweets and coke! A cafe with some personality and proper coffee would be nice.
  • Absolutely love this place just gets better as i get older and my children adore it as i did as a child
  • Lovely park, not too big, childrens swings/slides etc. Duck pond and tuck shop.
