Roath Park and Lake, Cardiff

Roath Park, opened in 1894, is Cardiff's most popular public park and it still retains its classic Victorian atmosphere and layout. It is one of Cardiff's biggest parks with a public lake where you can go rowing or just feed the ducks!

Following the Nant Fawr stream, the park has at its heart the 30 acre Roath Park Lake which is a popular facility for fishing and boating. The Scott Memorial Lighthouse on the lake is one of Cardiff's iconic images. The Terra Nova café has recently been extended and provides hot and cold meals all year round and toilet facilities are provided in the park.

North of the lake lies the Wild Garden - its winding paths and wildflowers shaded by trees - and the Llandennis Oval, a site steeped in history. Its ancient pond is said to be the site of St Isan's 12th century 'Llan' or enclosure. South of the lake is the Botanic Garden containing a superb tree and shrub collection, floral displays, adventure playground and Roath Park Conservatory.

Popular with families, the young and the old.
