Capital park best in Wales

"ONE of the capital’s parks has beaten off stiff competition from around the nation to be named the best in Wales.

Bute Park, left, situated right in the centre of Cardiff, has many historical landmarks contained within it, including Cardiff Castle.

It was given to the city council in 1947 by the estate of the Marquess of Bute.

The council still owns and maintains the park to this day.

Councillor Nigel Howells, executive member for Culture, Leisure & Parks, said: “All of us realise what an asset the green spaces are to Cardiff, of which Bute Park is such a fine example and we will as always ensure that they are protected for the enjoyment of all Cardiff residents and visitors alike.”"
