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.

  • Well laid out garden, but be aware of the dog's poop, it could be sneakily waiting for you to step in it?! Anywhere where the grass grows... However, the playground is brilliant, it takes forever to get the kids out of it so we could make our way home...
  • A typical Victorian garden. A large duck pond and well maintained. Very neat. Had a bird aviary also. Snack bars and a place for the kids to play.
  • Love love love. Everything in 1 park . Lovely walk past the duck pond a park also do activities with the children . A little nature reserve birds animals etc.
  • We love coming here... Lovely little park and you can buy seeds to feed the birds
  • Although it isn't a big park (compared to its neighbour Singleton Park), Brynmill Park has lots of interest for all. For children there is a playground, ducks to feed, suitable scooter/biking paths, pokestops (and two Pokemon Go gyms) and a kiosk which sells sweets, pasties and hot drinks. Look out for the terrapins in the water...
