Swansea Ramblers Walk


The Three Ponds Walk

18th October 2009

Leader: Gary Evans




Gary led us on a walk to see three ponds:  The community pond behind the playing fields in Upper Killay, the one hidden behind the university playing fields and finally the nature reserve pond in Gelli Hir.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
