Lying between the university and the Sketty end of Gower Road, Singleton Park is the city's main green space. It's the venue for many local events from the Proms in the Park to the Swansea Show. It's a great place to laze on summer days, shaded by trees and with views over the sea or for walks on colder days. The highlight of the park is the walled botanical garden, at its most spectacular in August, but with a good array of winter-flowering plants as well. The temperate and tropical hot houses are always welcoming, with collections of cacti, rain forest plants, orchids and begonias.
