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.
