Clyne Valley Country Park
Explore 700 acres of wooded hillsides, steep gorges, meadows and wet valley floor in this country park in Swansea. The park is great for walking and cycling with the trackbed of the old London Midland Scottish Railway forming the park's main footpath and cycleway. There are a number of water features in the park with the Clyne River, streams, old footbridges and a number of lakes and ponds to enjoy. Look out for birdlife that includes wagtails, wrens, nuthatches, robins and woodpeckers.
If you would like to continue your walk/cycle you can follow the traffic free Swansea bike path along the coast into Swansea, or north to Gowerton. The nearby Singleton Park with its beautiful botanical gardens is also well worth visiting.
