Excellent for families with young children, not only the playground, crazy golf but also a fab range of ice-cream available. Super views of the coast and the start of an excellent walk up the Golden Steps to even more spectacular views,

A huge area of pure nature to explore. You can even hike if you'd like, however make sure the ground is dry, otherwise your shoes will be ruined!

I grew up near here so I may be a little biased but Porthkerry Park is a lovely place to go out for the day. Picnic, splash in the sea, walk the trails...there is just so much nature and fresh air!
