Our Heritage

The park has undergone many changes as a result of winning heritage lottery funding and these alterations culminated in celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Dylan Thomas’ birth in 2014.

The Friends of Cwmdonkin Park is a community group dedicated to supporting the council and community in its attempts to keep the park a beautiful space for everyone to use. This includes:

• Sponsoring and supporting activity that maintains and improves the park

• Encouraging people to use the park by providing local events and activities

We are always looking for people who wish to help in our objectives, either informally, by helping at events, or, formally, by serving on our committee and helping to run things. If this is you, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us using the contact form on the website.

If you have memories of this beautiful park, which nestles in the heart of the city and which Dylan Thomas called “this world within the worldof the sea town”, we would welcome your contributions, old photographs, your memories and your stories. And, of course, if you want to join us, so much the better.
