Whilst we continue to live in difficult times, we are very pleased that the park is being frequenters more and more and hope that everyone is enjoying it as much as we do.

We are waiting for changes to social distancing and will be back in force with running our summer fun day and other events. We are pleased that we have just won a grant to help with putting on the fun-day, but as we are a non-money making organisation, we are only able to put events on through the good will of others.

If you are able to, we would welcome a donation to help us continue putting events on when possible.

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.
