Singleton Botanical Gardens
A champion for horticulture, biodiversity and sustainable practices.
The Botanical Gardens are run by the Parks Service of the City and County of Swansea and contain fine specimens of rare and exotic plants from around the world in both indoor and outdoor displays. Ty'r Blodau is a purpose built education and visitor centre sited within the gardens and, along with the Brynmill Discovery Centre in the nearby Brynmill Park, provides the base for a programme of educational activities related to horticulture and wildlife.
Waste wood from felling and pruning in local parks and green spaces is chipped and used in a biomass boiler that provides heat for the hot houses. Green waste is also composted for use in the gardens and potting services.
School and community groups can arrange tours of the site and activities in Ty'r Blodau or the Brynmill Discovery Centre. Charges may apply to some activities. There is no vehicular access in the parks except a limited number of disable parking spaces close to the entrance of the Botanical Gardens. The gardens, and the buildings in both parks, are wheelchair accessible.
