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.
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.
If you enjoy walking with us and want to come on even more of our walks, just become a member.
When you join us for a Swansea Walk, ask us about the other walks and social events we do.

It was all too much for one small Rambler!
But mum and dad thoroughly enjoyed themselves
