Welcome to Brynmill Park
Always a popular attraction for the local community Brynmill Park began to fall into some disrepair through the 1990s and early years of new millennium. However, Brynmill Park is steadily being recreated and improved thanks to the hard work of the Swansea City Council Park Officers and generous grants provided by the Heritage Lottery fund.
The Park is fun for all ages, but is especially fun for youngsters, check out the Park activity for youngsters at Junior Park Rangers for loads of events and activities at Brynmill and the other parks in Swansea!
Great News for all users of Brynmill Park!
Thanks to the determined efforts of FOBP group member Norman McCarley, Brynmill Park has had its future secured from any threat of development!
Fearing for the future of the Park in these uncertain times, Norman approached the 'Fields in Trust' organisation (formally the National Playing Fields Association) and secured their expertise in establishing the status of the park as a protected space.
A deed of declaration has been drawn up between the City and Council of Swansea and the Fields in Trust organisation establishing the Park as a protected space now known as the “Queen Elizabeth II Field, Brynmill Park”.
Information on the Fields In Trust can be found here:
A plaque has been erected in the Park to commemorate this event. If you want more information please contact us via the methods on our "get in touch" link or come and join us in our monthly meeting at the Brynmill Community Centre which occur on the last Tuesday of every month.

SOUTH WALES EVENING POST CASH FOR COMMUNITIES COMPETITION
The Friends of Brynmill Park group organised a collection of vouchers for the Evening Post competition which posted a fund of £20,000 to be divided by fifty community groups. Thanks to the efforts of the Brynmill and Uplands communities, local traders and our members, we secured a share of £329.77!
We are delighted to receive this amount to put towards community events in Brynmill Park. We'd like to say a big THANK YOU to those whose great response largely contributed to the number of tokens collected.
It was certainly a project which drew the community together and reflects the fondness you all have of Brynmill Park and your appreciation for all our past events.
Thanks to the huge efforts of the Friends Of Brynmill Park committee, especially Ann Jones (our secretary), the National Lottery's Big Lottery Fund
has awarded the park a grant of £2665 to fund our events and promotions!

Oral History Project.
Have you got any memories of the Park?
Do you drift away into a warm glow of nostalgia when you remember your Mum or Dad taking you to see the old menagerie or going to feed the ducks on a Sunday afternoon?
Did you and your beloved sneak away for a crafty snog amongst the flower beds?
Want to share ( be careful if its the latter sort ) those memories?
If so we're going to launch an oral history program to record all these precious moments. We have got ourselves a digital voice recorder (thanks to those grants mentioned below) and we're going to start a collection of verbal histories which we can store and use (maybe we can stream them from this web site) so everybody can share your experiences of the Park. Contact us via this site's 'contact' page and tell us all.... We promise not to sell it to one of the tabloids, honest!
Tom Morgans Friends of Brynmill Park have managed to secure a number of grants to allow us to continue to promote the use of the Park for recreational and educational uses. We were fortunate in securing money from the 'Tidy Towns' organisation that will allow us to purchase liability insurance for a number of events during the next year. They've also provided kit for keeping the park tidy. Feel free to volunteer to help use this kit!
Other monies are in the pipeline and our plans include the purchase of small public address system and a digital voice recorder so we can record peoples memories of the park from the past to the present. Again, if this is of interest to you, please get in touch!
