“Great Park”
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!”
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”
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.

“Beautiful spot for many activities”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I live in Cardiff and have visited this park many times. It is very picturesque, with its lake and amazing gardens. We often go just for a walk, but it's also a great place to go running, as many people do. It's very flat, and I believe that a circuit of the lake is 1km, and a circuit of the external pavements is 1 mile. There is also a children's play park which is very popular, you can boat on the lake, there's a swanky coffee shop, and a resident ice cream van.

“OLD FASHIONED ENJOYMENT”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Walk around this lovely lake within the park but beware of the Canada geese, they have a tendency to hiss which is amusing but a little scary! Thousands of different species toddle round the park, from ducks to swans etc. children can amuse themselves on the swings, slides and roundabouts while parents can enjoy a coffee in the lakeside cafe. Boats available for hire in summer ...... always a giggle. Roath Park is a fantastic place for an afternoon out.
