Statement about Roath Park Recreational Ground

Initial designs to construct a new path on the northern side of Roath Recreation ground have been changed following discussions with Natural Resources Wales, which no longer requires an upgraded path for access.

Consequently the council WILL NOT be proceeding with the construction of this path. For clarity this was the path proposed to run parallel to Roath Brook and Ty Draw Road.  The existing path along Roath Brook will now remain in situ and unchanged.

On the Ninian Road, south side of the park a shared use path, including a cycleway, is currently under construction. Once this is completed the four sports pitches which are currently out of action, will be reinstated to the recreation ground. The configuration of the pitches will be reviewed – in consultation with users and residents - to ensure the best use of the space available.
