If you stroll around Roath Park you will probably notice the tennis courts, the lighthouse and the gardens, but what about its most overlooked contribution?
As you wander around Roath Park, you may not have noticed the many memorial benches set in honour of loved ones. Spaces, perhaps, for quiet contemplation. But today these benches are also a site of laughter, as college students gather to eat their lunches. The Made in Roath arts event has come to a close and a volunteer, Nick, pauses beside the bowling-green. Down on the open lawns Lynda plays with her affectionate puppy, Belle, smiling as other dog-walkers pass by. Each bench provides a pause; one you may pass alone, share with friends or spend with your dog amongst the grounds.
