Cefn Onn Park

As I'm about to move out of Cardiff (again) in a few weeks I thought I'd share one of my favourite places in the city, Cefn Onn Park. 

Cefn Onn Park is in the Lisvane area of Cardiff and thankfully very close to where my parent's house is, even when I was in Caerphilly it was only a 15 minute drive away from my house. I've probably spent hours and hours here over the years, walked a variety of dogs and seen it through all seasons. It's really a wonderful place for a walk at any time of the year. 

Once you're out of the car park and you've walked under the M4, the further into the park you get the more the roar of the motorway fades until you hardly hear it and you could be in the middle of the countryside and not in a capital city. It had a huge variety of trees and plants, as well as a pretty impressive pond.

Once you've headed up the paths you come to an open field boarding Llanishen golf course, a great place for picnics as long as you watch out for golf balls coming your way! You're afforded a stunning view of the trees within the park too from the field.

I feel like I've let people into a bit of a secret when it comes to this place, but I think it's one worth sharing. I'm going to miss being so close to it when we move to Monmouth, hopefully we'll find equally lovely places to walk close to our home when we get there.
