Events in Swansea: parks & gardens

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our b&b

May 2017

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.

Regular Adventure Walks are a great way to be active outdoors and simply enjoy sociable Nordic Walking in stunning locations with a mixed ability group. These classes always finish at the cafe.

For those who have concerns about distance, pace or their health, our Wellbeing Walks are a gentle safe way to walk yourself fitter. Never venturing far from the entrance, these walks will include exercises that help with flexibility, balance and strength whilst using poles to improve general fitness and increase joint mobility.
