It's got a large lake, kiddies play area, flower garden, wild garden, greenhouse, prom boats etc.etc. Almost impossible not to like. Great for walking and /or relaxing. Apparently I took my first ever walking upright steps there so I am biased!! Seriously a good place to try for visitors to Cardiff who have seen enough shops and the bay!

As a frequent visitor to Roath Park, I never tire of the beautiful lake and grounds adorned with a variety of flowers and birds. There are well-maintained toilet facilities as well as a cafe and a permanent ice cream shop. A peaceful oasis in the city.

Roath park has been a venue for Cardiffians to take their leisure for more than a century. I've been going there since the 70s for a relaxing walk around the lake. For me, at it's best on a crisp autumn day

Lovely lake and park. We enjoy going for a walk around the lake and the grounds. Plenty of benches to sit down and enjoy the views and wildlife. We love this place

Can park on the road, this park splits in to several. Swans, lakes, boating lakes and plenty of placess to sit and good paths to walk around the lakes. Plenty of parks for the kids to play and loads of empty spaces to run and kick a ball. Little bridges and loads of flowers and fauna. A delightful place to... More

Beautiful lake and park, lots to do. Lovely bacon butty in the cafe by the lighthouse, playground and boats can be hired on the lake. Great for a day chilling out with the family.

Roth park is one of my favourite places to go on a summers day. I've been visiting since I was a child and still choose to go. There are beautiful rose gardens, trees and grassy areas to sit and relax, a play park for the children, pedalo and rowing boats and beautiful lakes to stroll around. Highly recommended!!
