A wonderful park, small lake and promenade pathway with a large rocky beach. A few ice cream parlours and eating places add to the facilities. Ideal for beach bbqs or picnics. Do visit!

Great day out with the family whether for a social adventure or a solo stroll. Well worth a visit of around the Vale of Glamorgan. A lot of parking access and toilet facilities.

This is a lovely place to visit as you have the lakes right next to the seafront. If you walk onto the hill from the promenade there is a lovely seat on the top overlooking the sea. This is also the final approach for many...More
