Heath Park

About Heath Park

Once part of Cardiff’s ‘Great Heath ’, Heath Park is now an important ‘green lung’ for Cardiff’s northern suburbs. The 37 hectare (91 acre) park provides sport and play facilities for all ages, but also contains woodland areas, ponds and wetland which are habitat for a wide range of plants and wildlife.

Heath Park is one of Cardiff’s Green Flag parks.
