The Knap is one of my favourite places to visit, I absolutely love the lake which is teeming with ducks and swans. The gardens are immaculate with plenty of benches to enjoy a sandwich. As well as the beautiful gardens and a lake, there is also a pebble beach which is always clean. This is a great location to enjoy a peaceful walk and parking is free. There are lots of places to visit near the Knap including: * Barry Island which has great attractions including a beautiful sandy beach, arcades, mini golf, fairground rides and lots of beach shops, cafes and fish shops along the promenade. * Barry Town Centre which has a mixture of independent and high street stores such as Pep & Co, The Card Factory, B & M and so on * Jackson Bay which is a small secluded bay * Friars point which has amazing views over the Bristol Channel Further afield there is also Llantwit Major, Cardiff, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Ogmore by Sea, Southerndown, Cowbridge and the Rhondda Valleys. All of which are great places to visit.

Such a tranquil place to just sit and watch the world go by. Parking is free and some nice places to walk along the coast. Enjoyed the sunshine too !.

I don’t understand why it’s listed as The Knap, Cardiff, when it’s in Barry? We go there quite often with grandchildren, dog or both as it’s flat, on the coast and park, so always wildlife for the kids. The lake perimeter path though was a mess with bird droppings and we saw the council are now using a sweeper to remove most of this to improve the walk around. Good parking facilities on the front and some cafes and restaurants to sit and relax afterwards, well worth a try but the car park near the railway is very pot holed and should be improved to draw more people.
