This is a beautiful park, with carefully tended flower beds and great tennis courts! There is also a very nice little coffee shop in the grounds! This is worth a visit!

A beautiful small city centre park where Dylan Thomas grew up. His house is preserved and open for visits and loads of history to be seen.

Good park. Be even better with more play areas as it gets busy. The tennis courts are free. The cafe is good. Really nice flowers everywhere. You can find a peaceful spot.
