Something for everyone including nature, trees and scenery, hills, paths, and secret hideaways! Play areas, tennis, bowls, football and basketball court! Dog walkers, ramblers, families and teenagers. I love this park and its Friends of Group who put on all sorts of exciting activities throughout the year! Plus Mrs T's cafe.
Belle Vue Park
This green and leafy park not only has a great children's area, bowls green and tennis courts but also a fantastic lime tree avenue, a Chinese tea house, a bandstand and a beautiful Victorian conservatory building which has a wonderful cafe. It's just the perfect peaceful park.
Cyfarthfa Park is a Green Flag park for people of all ages, ranging from the very young to the old. Various social and community groups use the facilities and enrich the Park with their presence. Set in beautiful gardens and woodlands it is a pleasure for the public to visit.
Jubilee Park and Nature Trail
East Williamston Jubilee Park is unique in Pembrokeshire, safe from road, offering 18 acres for relaxation, exercise, fun, nature trails and with a dedicated play area. Maintained largely by a keen band of volunteers who always welcome more to their team, it provides space for all - including dogs and well behaved owners!
Llyn Llech Owain
Llyn Llech Owain is a wonderful park with myriad environments, from moorland, woodland and a beautiful lake formed in the last ice age! It has areas of outstanding beauty and scientific interest. It also hosts a parkrun every Saturday morning. A wonderful jewel set in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside.
Pembrey Country Park
It’s so much more than a park, it has a beach front, woods, grass and cycle routes. You take the car in for the full day out, play traditional games, people walk, BBQ, ski, run, camp, hire bikes, or what we do - walk the dog, anytime of the year.
Pontypool Park is locally known as the People’s Park, covering some 64 hectares with historical features - Italian Gardens, Ice Houses, Tramway Tunnel and Shell Grotto. There are many veteran sweet chestnuts surrounding the Nant-y-Gollen Ponds and close to the Gorsedd Stone Circle. Also children's playground, rugby pitch, bowls and ski slope.
Porthkerry Country Park
A country park in an urban area that does a really good job of pleasing different visitors. It has woodland, fields, golf course, ponds, a viaduct, a pebbly beach, coastal path, lodge for hire and a cafe. Used by famillies, school children, dog walkers, nature lovers, cyclists, ramblers, picnickers, volunteer groups and sports groups.
Roath Park is situated in the middle of the city and can be accessed easily for old and young alike. It has a lake, a children's play area, numerous walks, specimen trees and plants, a greenhouse, a rose garden and ice cream or a cup of tea in the cafe.
A special park in Barry, a wonderful collection of mature trees, a playground and a large green space, bowling green, tennis court and all in a beautiful setting near the coast.
Six Bells Park
The Park is a traditional park in the heart of the community. It provides bowling and tennis facilities as well as having a well equipped children's play park. The Park has been brought back from dereliction by a team of volunteers who as well as maintaining it, provide fundays.
Our beautiful field was gifted so "the children could always play". As we embark on our third fight to save the field for future generations, we feel, our entry in this competition would a fitting tribute to the generous donor to show how much we love and appreciate his gift.
It's an oasis of loveliness in an otherwise unloved part of our town. With lots of flowers, lots of outdoor play for the kids (and big kids) and loads of fun events through the year it's become the place to go for all ages.
