Lovely children's play area with a great zip wire. The park also has tennis courts, a bowling green and plenty of green space to run around in.

This is the park where Dylan Thomas played as a child and described as an adult. Nice to see it still in use and so well maintained.

This large well kept public park is located in the Swansea Uplands neighbourhood. There is a walking path that meanders throughout the inside perimeter of the park. Kids enjoy the playground, zip line, longest slide they have ever seen in a public park anywhere in...More

Pretty park in the middle of Swansea's middle class neighborhood. Green and tidy. Dylan Thomas used to hang out here.

This is a beautiful park, with carefully tended flower beds and great tennis courts! There is also a very nice little coffee shop in the grounds! This is worth a visit!

A beautiful small city centre park where Dylan Thomas grew up. His house is preserved and open for visits and loads of history to be seen.

Good park. Be even better with more play areas as it gets busy. The tennis courts are free. The cafe is good. Really nice flowers everywhere. You can find a peaceful spot.
