Fab for kids

Lovely safe play area, good spaces for walking dogs, well-kept tennis courts and a fab cafe that operates in summer months. Great for families with children.

An amazing place for children where they can run safely. Plenty of swings and slides. They also have a zip wire. Our grandchildren love it.

Dylan Thomas grew up here and you can imagine him as a small boy running through the park. Its such a special place, I like it during the school term when its at its quietest but it can be enjoyed at any time, go there, walk in Dylans footsteps.

This is a slightly quieter park than the Brymill or Singleton, but it has plenty to do. There are play areas for children and tennis courts for adults. It often hosts a variety of events, though finding the events calendar online can be a little tricky, worth visiting the site cwmdonkinpark.com for whats going on.

This is a favourite of ours since it's recent regeneration. There's a small enclosed playground for small children, plus a zip wire and slide built into the hillside for bigger children. Lots of open space to kick a ball around or walk the dog, also tennis courts, bowling green and a little cafe that serves lovely home made cakes!

Since the Dylan Thomas recreation the park it perfection. The only negative is that the water gardens allow dogs to get inside the water area but not able to get back out.

Cwmdonkin Park, associated with Dylan Thomas, as he lived nearby, has been revamped. Dylan spent time in the park, where he probably had ideas for his writings. There is a good children's playground in the park as well as tennis courts and a bowling green. In the summer months there is a café.
