this is a very popular park for taking a leisurely stroll at your own pace, plenty of off track areas to wander off to, the back drop of Clyne Castle is Fantastic and worth a few photographs

Clyne castle gardens is a national treasure and a must for anyone who loves rhododendrons and floral woodland. Set in a sheltered valley with fine views across Swansea bay this is a truly magical place to visit in early May. Begin at the top of the Park crossing the ornamental bridge by the Japanese lily pond and the handkerchief tree... More

This is a garden which was originally in private hands up to the 1950s but now is open to the public. It has a tremendous display of rhododendrums in season but is delightful any time of year. Kids can have fun trying to find the lookout tower.

Its competes with the very best in May when the rhodendrons are glorious. It is marvellous at any time, full of interesting trees and lovely features.

A nice place to visit at all times of the year and a special time is the autumn with the different changing colour of the trees. Great views of the Swansea Bay

This is a "must see" attraction in Swansea. The walk is so enjoyable and, there seems to be something interesting to see whatever the season. I liked the Handkerchief tree by Joy Cottage whilst the children loved hiding amongst the giant Elephant rhubarb in the big garden, the face in the bark of the magical story tree and reading the...

Be warned, the gardens are not flat, there are some steep-ish paths. The gardens cover a fair sized area and tend to be fairly quite. A handy place to go to chill out.

Been coming here since a little girl. Great exploring to do with the kids, lovely walks with the dogs it can be hilly but it's beautiful in all seasons. Great for sledging on the rare occasions we get snow. Parking is on the road but that's not an issue.

The first time I walked into Clyne gardens I was taken back , the amount of work they have done to make it that gorgeous is amazing. You feel like your walking thought different country's.
