Dylan Thomas and Cwmdonkin Park
The memories of Dylan Thomas and Cwmdonkin Park are closely interwoven. It is clear from his fond descriptions that he saw the park as a wonderful, safe place where the imagination of a young boy was allowed to run wild. "And in the park was a world within the world of the seatown," as he wrote in his Remiscences of Childhood.
For those of you keen on enjoying the Dylan Thomas experience, there is the Uplands Trail, a relatively short walk round the landmarks of Uplands, including Cwmdonkin Park. It is one of a series of walks in Wales. This one takes you round the area where the poet was born and lived much of his early life.
