The Wenallt is an area of semi natural ancient woodland to the north of Cardiff. The land extends into other woodlands to the north west – Cwm Nofydd, designated as a Local Nature Reserve and Fforest Ganol – a Site of Special Scientific interest.
The area is a well known local beauty spot and a popular site for picnics in summer. In spring there are displays of bluebells and other spring flowers throughout the woodland.
- Wenallt camp is a hill fort of undetermined age located in the southern part of the Wenallt woodland. The fort would have afforded extensive views across the Cardiff area and over the Bristol Channel.
- Extensive footpath and bridleway network
- Wildlife haven. The woodland contains local sites for nature conservation and its varied biodiversity includes badgers, buzzards, great spotted woodpeckers and wood warblers
The parkland is open 24 hours a day.
