Latest Sustainable Swansea Green Map highlight’s city’s wonderful green spaces.
Do you know where all of your local parks and green spaces are? A new green map from Sustainable Swansea will help you to explore them.
The latest in the Sustainable Swansea Green Map series highlights an amazing selection of accessible green spaces within the City and County of Swansea. From parks and gardens to nature reserves and open countryside, Swansea is blessed with an extensive and diverse green infrastructure network which provides opportunities for everyone to play, exercise and enjoy contact with nature.
Before this latest map, nine community green maps have been produced in Swansea for areas such as Penlan, Castle, Townhill, Morriston, Pontarddulais, Gower, St Thomas and Port Tennant, Penderry and the Central Swansea area.
Delyth Higgins, one of Sustainable Swansea’s Community Outreach Officers said,
We are really pleased to be publishing another map and this time it follows a theme of green spaces rather than a wide-ranging map of a specific community location. We hope it will be useful to both residents and visitors alike and will help people find that hidden gem.”
There are many more sites on the online version than we could fit on a printed map, so people should have a look at the Online Swansea Green Map to see even more green spaces that Swansea has to offer.”
Deb Hill, Nature Conservation Team Leader at City and County of Swansea, who worked in partnership with Sustainable Swansea, to produce the map, with funding from the Welsh Government Single Revenue Grant said,
This new map is a great asset which encourages people to find out about, visit and enjoy the amazing wealth of accessible green spaces we have in Swansea, in both urban and rural parts of the County. We would like to find out what you think about the green spaces on your doorstep, so please visit the online version to feed in your views and comments.”
Copies of the map will be available in lots of places, including the Civic Centre, museums, libraries, other public places and of course from the Environment Centre in Pier Street in the Marina area.
