This grade 2 listed country park is situated on the northern fringes of Cardiff. It contains a truly magnificent collection of native and exotic trees set within an intimate valley. Visitors enjoy the stunning scenery and the calm, relaxing atmosphere.


The park was originally designed some 90 years ago taking advantage of the gentle valley containing the Nant Fawr stream. 


The streams, ponds, woodlands and other planting make this a rich haven for wildlife. Visitors regularly return to enjoy the park in different seasons.
