Why locals love it

Cardiff is rife in greenery, but Roath Park is arguably its most popular public park. A community spot for people of all ages, this stunning Victorian Park is bursting with exquisite nature, a large lake, a botanic garden, sport's facilities in its Pleasure Gardens, children's parks and quaint cafes... and that barely scratches the surface!

Why you should visit it

Just out of the centre, it offers a calm relief from the hustle and bustle of capital city life. It's beauty calls for you to just stroll around and drink in the sights...but there's also tons to do for the active souls out there! The best part? You can even hire a boat and take to the lake - fun for families and also super romantic for couples!

Special tip

Just outside of the park, Joe's Ice Cream Parlour offers the best ice cream in all of Cardiff! Grab a cone and take to the park for a calm stroll!
