Fabulous Gardens you Should VisitDate Posted: 02 May 2018
Since it is National Gardening Week we thought we would remind you of some of the fabulous gardens you can go a visit to see the spring colours in full bloom.
Bute Park, Cardiff
Cardiff's biggest park, nestled in the middle of the Welsh capital, plays host to some fine specimens of magnolia trees, one of the most spectacular spring blooms. Walk through a meadow of blossom and you're bound to leave with a smile on your face. There is plenty to do in the park and you can pick up a variety of self-led trails to guide you on certain activities and topics. Situated beyond Cardiff Castle just a short walk from the city’s main high streets and civic centre, Bute Park really is the “green heart of the city”. Full of historic and wildlife interest, at 56 hectares (equivalent to 75 football pitches) it is one of the largest urban parks in Wales and comprises a broad mix of historic landscape, urban woodland, sports pitches, arboretum, horticultural features and river corridor.
Alexandra Gardens, Cardiff
This little haven of beauty is hidden in the middle of Cardiff's Civic Centre in Cathays. It's the perfect place to take in the beauty of early spring and a popular haunt for many workers who grab a sandwich for lunch in the fresh air. It's very pink and picturesque at this time of year. Surrounded by impressive buildings including City Hall and the National Museum, the park sits in an oasis of landscaped gardens and tree-lined avenues. And best of all, it's open to everyone 24 hours a day.
Roath Park, Cardiff
Not only can you enjoy the boating lake, feeding the ducks and a play in the play park, but if you want proof that spring has sprung, it's right there too. This is one of the most popular parks in Cardiff, and features a botanic garden complete with a trees, shrubs and floral displays.
