Trelai Park

Opened in 1933, Trelai Park is a large open space in the Caerau area of Cardiff. Formerly used locally as a race course, the area now provides sports pitches complete with large car park and changing rooms.

In the middle of the park is the site of a Roman Villa dating from the first century AD.


  • Roman Villa site: In 1894 a first century Roman villa was discovered on Ely Racecourse and excavations were carried out in 1922. The site of the villa is still visible as an unmown area in the middle of Trelai Park, although the excavations have been covered over. The site is a scheduled ancient monument.


  • Sports fields and changing rooms
