“a walk on the 'bright' side!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The park has one of Europe's leading collection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons and to add to this a vast selection of trees! So there will always be something to see on your visit. Add to this the birds but you will need a set of bino's as the tree canopy is so high. Having undertaken a recent, considerable conservation project, the park has actually changed in a way.Pathways and small structures have become revealed, just like a secret garden from a children story book and making things more accessible. However the mystic has gone in the process. The object was to cut away certain growth and clear away scrub, whilst recycling. One thing that hasn't changed though is certain dog owner not placing a lead on their dogs and instead letting them free run. There is a boot wash at the entrance (behind the gents toilets) which you might find handy and plenty of dog waste bins throughout and litter bins

“A Winter Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We walked the full length and bredth of this parc and then some !!!

They've done a lot of work here making it look nice, plans, flower beds etc, since we last came here nearly 10 years ago.

Very popular with families with young children, riding bikes, scooter and walking the dog.

Plenty of space though for everyone and plenty of bins for the rubbish. There is no cafe (well not one we found anyway) but there is a pub at the entrance whih serves great food.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

A much forgotten beauty on the outskirts of Cardiff. Perfect for a relaxing walk in any weather, Dog and children friendly. There are routed through this park which lead up onto public footpaths along the Graig mountain. My personal favourite leads to the Maen Llwyd Inn, where there are open log fires and great food,

“pleasant sunday afternoon stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

i visit this park a good few times a year, lovely flowers in spring, some great old trees and has that lovely old Victorian feel to it, looks like its had a bit of attention spent on the upkeep lately too. Took my 82 year old Dad there and he loved it and found it easy to get around. The only reason I didnt give it full marks was because of the huge amount people who take their dogs there and let them off the leads, although alot of people do clean up after their dogs, there are also a fair few who dont, dog mess is horrible and dangerous to children and there is no excuse for not clearing up after your pet!
