This is a great little park in the middle of the city, a lovely respite. Lots of families out playing with kiddies, and folks out with doggies, too. Park is quite clean and nice, with a little snack shack down by the tennis courts. Be aware that the road alongside, where we parked, is quite steep, so be careful if... More

I often stop by the park when visiting family in the area. Its great for a nice walk with a dog or by yourself Areas that are hidden away at the back are quite and around the children's play noisier. Meaning it is good for families.

This park has been upgraded and is well worth a visit. It has plenty of attractions for children as it has a play area and tennis courts. It is also very scenic and has some great walks. It is very clean and tidy and has good landscaping. It is also very near to the Uplands shopping centre if you need... More

My only grumble was that some dog owners let their pets off the lead. Other than that there is plenty of space for the children to run around and a park area. My grandson loves the zip wire.

I have fallen in love with this park, which is strange as I hardly bothered going there as a child. I take my daughter there every weekend. We spend time in the play area and then walking around the steep hills looking at the squirrels in the trees and flowers. We finish off with a coffee and an ice cream... More

Lots of money spent on it in recent years and all for the good. Remember it as it was in Dylan's day now the whole family can go there and get what they want out of the experience. Children's play area, cafe, iconic Dylan sites and quiet areas for reflection.

It has improved a lot recently, great play area for the children, pleasant surroundings to stroll with dogs' lovely views of the Mumbles. Great place to spend a relaxing hour Cute, friendly little outdoor coffee shop which also caters for the children and the dogs.

Visited this country park recenlty. There is a lot of repair and renovation going on - although the work is very well managed and not too intrustive for visitors. I was amazed by the transformation of this great park. Once best known for it's organgery and herd of deer, the park now boosts a wide range of new attractions. On... More

Since the refurbishment this park has come into its own. It is a great place for a quiet stroll with a quaint little olde worlde style coffee shop that serves great coffee, snacks & ice cream. What more could one want in such a nice setting? :)

A lot of work has been done on the park recently and it really is one of the best in Swansea, great for families and well looked after, also a café, tennis courts and lots of activities and events throughout the year.
