The new Dylan’s at Cwmdonkin cafe opened this week.
Pleased to be in the many customers on the first day.
Very friendly owners who have lived locally for years.
Good selection of cakes including gluten free and 2 x vegan cakes (these sold out quickly).
Usual coffee selection but includes 3 different plant milks.
Locally made ice cream with a dairy free one coming soon.
Vegan ice lollies.

The visit this time, post pandemic, was a pleasant stroll with very few people around (the weather for August was pretty wild). The place is very hilly but it has got interesting plants and, naturally, a lot of information about Dylan Thomas and other notables who have lived around this area of the Uplands. There were notices on the toilets concerning Covid-19 infections (but I'm not sure whether people would really follow the directive). Not a bad place for a walk (the slide, however, needs a bit of lubrication).

Dylan Thomas loved Cwmdonkin Park, and the line, 'A world within the world of the sea town', is from one of his poems. It's a delightful park, with paths to explore, lawned areas, shrubs, tennis courts, a children's play area with several activities to entertain them. There is even a basketball hoop. It's not frequented by many people, so if you want a relaxing moment, where, if you have them, your children can entertain themselves, then I suggest you give the park a visit one day.

Really impressed with the new provisions at the kiosk. The coffee and cakes were delicious, home made cakes and locally sourced coffee and ice-cream. Very pleasant service also made our afternoon even more enjoyable - just what Cwmdonkin Park needed!

My previous visit to this famous park was en route to the Dylan Thomas Birthplace and, unbeknownst to me, it was undergoing restoration at the time. It was also winter. So, it seemed simply cold and muddy to me, and I hurried through no noticing it. On Saturday, however, I was booked to read some poetry at the Green Fuse event, organised by the Friends of Cwmdonkin Park, and the makeover the park had undergone since my first visit (late 2011) was nothing short of miraculous. Such a beautiful, abundantly green, tree- and flower-filled space! It truly is one of the most delightful and disarmingly lovely parks I have ever been to. The Green Fuse event itself was much bigger than I had anticipated, with several stages, various play areas for kids, a range of covered tents containing stalls by local artisans and sellers of various foods/wares, and so much more besides. It was also very sunny, with only very odd overcast moments, the atmosphere was very jovial, the music was excellent, and the spoken word well-suited to the spirit of Dylan Thomas that I'm sure would've been pleased to see such a well-run and much-enjoyed festival taking place on one of his favourite patches of earth. A marvellous day!!! Oh, and I also had a delicious ice-cream from Joe's, in the park and highly recommended!! :-)

It's a pity this park, like so many in Swansea, seem to be a dog walker's haven, although having said this it was nice to see parents with children using the play equipment and they outnumbered the dog walkers on this occasion. It is a pretty park and nice to be able to have a pleasant stroll not too far from the Uplands shopping area.

Since the Dylan Thomas recreation the park it perfection. The only negative is that the water gardens allow dogs to get inside the water area but not able to get back out.

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.
