“Nice level walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

In the centre of Cardiff with an excellent walk around the lake - though watch the swan droppings. Plenty of seating and usually easy parking. For youngsters there is a play area and for the gardners interesting varieties of plants and trees. Good place to go whilst the wife is shopping.

“Breathtaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Even in the snow Roath park is a sanctuary. I love the walks and the lake. Really beautiful - I walk through most weeks.

“Great Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a fantastic place to while away a few hours, feed the ducks, let the kids ride on their bikes and have a pleasent walk. Well worth a trip.

“love the ducks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

always try to get to the park at least once a week, my son loves feeding the ducks. the swans are a bit snappy so tend to steer clear of them...although my son finds it hillarious when they start chasing us! lovely walk around the lake then into the park for half hr play...ice cream van has been there everyday even when its freezing! beautiful place

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Good location, near to Albany Road which is full of shops. There is a good, little childrens play park at the one far corner of roath park. There is also a lake where in the summer season you can ride boats on and a cute little conservatory.
