One of my favorite places in cardiff for a Sunday morning walk. The lake is picturesque and the gardens are well maintained. I feel we are very fortunate to have this gem in our city.

This has to be the most beautiful place to visit in the middle of a city. The gardens are magnificent and lots of birds which nest here to. There is a really big lake which you can hire boats to go on.

Yes, but advise near the playground or gardens away from the lake as the birds will be attracted. Not that many picnic benches so best take a picnic blanket
