We continue to live in difficult times, but we are very pleased that Cwmdonkin Park is serving  our community by providing a beautiful open space for relaxation and  exercise, and safe opportunities to meet friends and family outdoors. 

The vast majority of visitors have been using the park in a responsible way – for everything from dog walking to sporting activities; from picnics to using the children’s play equipment.  Please continue to use the park responsibly – and put any litter in the bins provided (or take recyclable items home). There has, however, been some irresponsible or  anti-social behaviour in the park, especially in the summer evenings; such behaviour continues to be closely monitored by the police and others. But if you see or hear anything in the park that worries you, please contact the police immediately on 101.

Because of Covid restrictions, we have been unable to run any of our “Friends” free events in the park in 2020, but we hope to get  back on track in 2021 when we return to something like normality.   If you wish to join the Friends of Cwmdonkin Park to help with such events or to help in other ways, please get in touch with us  via the contact button.    We rely entirely on donations and fund-raising activities to enable us to put on our events in the park.  If you are able to make a donation to help us continue running our events, please consider doing so via the donation button.

About Us

The Friends of Cwmdonkin Park exist to support the regeneration of Cwmdonkin Park and the surrounding area. It is a community group of local volunteers and its aim is to participate in local events and to raise funds in support of the project to regenerate this part of Swansea. The project, funded by Heritage Lottery and other funding, aims to improve access to the park, raise the standard of facilities and to replant and restore the park.

Because of the strong connection with Dylan Thomas, the Friends also see their role as supporting the initiatives surrounding the centenary of his birth in 2014 and beyond.

The Friends welcomes new members, both local and from all around the world. If you are interested in this wonderful park and in supporting its improvement and would like to join the Friends, then please click here to get in touch with us today.


We would love to hear from you, whether you want to know more information about the park, if you have some interesting stories to tell or if you want to become a Friend.
