Swansea Ramblers Walk


The Big Welsh Walk
In Praise of Parks

5th May 2013

Leader: Mike Clarke




Swansea Ramblers' Big Welsh Walk Festival continued on Bank Holiday Sunday with a walk to some of Swansea's Parks.  Starting from the Civic Centre, we strolled along the beach to the Slip and from there visited Victoria Park.  A short walk along the beach again and we were at Singleton Park.  We followed the stream to Brynmill park and had refreshments at the kiosk before continuing around the lake.   Leaving by the gate we entered, we returned to Singleton Park, had lunch at the Botanical Gardens then looked at the Rhododendrons in the Educational Gardens before leaving via the University gate for Mumbles Road.  Crossing the bridge, we re-joined the beach and returned to the Civic Centre.  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.
