This is a lovely park with lots of variety, it's a great place to walk round if you're in Cardiff and also good to cut through rather than walking along the road.

There is NO fee for entry to the park. Any footwear if fine, although, that will depend on the amount of walking wishes to do.

Depends where in the Park you are walking and time of year; for a summer stroll on the main footpaths, ordinary shoes are fine. If you are dog walking in autumn or winter, then good quality wellies are advised
