Cwmdonkin Park is closely associated with Dylan Thomas. There are more wood sculptures etc to see. There is an excellent playground for children. And for later in the year there are tennis courts and a bowling green and also the tearoom.

A lovely little park not far (about a mile) from the town centre. It is accessible from Uplands, 400 metres from bus routes. There are tennis courts and grassy areas plus formal beds and walks. Worth a visit, if you've time to spare.

Very pretty area. Spent many afternoons studying there on a nice day. Nice areas to take kids but also areas to chill out in the quiet if that's what you want. Take a look :)
