Living in Sketty
A stone's throw from the development is the glorious Singleton Park. Home to Swansea Botanical Gardens, a lake with pedaloes, a children's play area and crazy golf, it's a great place to spend some time with the family. And with acres of unadorned green space, it's also the perfect place for a quiet stroll.
If you enjoy being by the sea, you couldn't find a much better spot than Swansea Bay. It stretches from the dunes near Swansea Marina to Mumbles Pier, offering all that a great pier should, from fish and chips and ice cream to an amusements arcade and boating lake. And if it's a beach day you want, you need look no further than Caswell Bay - popular with families and surfers alike, it is wheelchair accessible and boasts spectacular views across the bay.
For similarly magnificent sights, head to Clyne Gardens. Internationally famous for its collections of certain plant species and annual displays, it features fantastic collections of rare species, a bluebell wood and a beautiful wild flower meadow, to name but a few.
Any rugby fans might be interested to know that the Liberty Stadium, home of the Ospreys, is only around 4 miles away, and for those who enjoy a slightly slower paced sport, Swansea Bowls Club is nestled just above Swansea Bay and always welcomes new members.
You may also consider joining the local Swansea group of the University of the Third Age (U3A). This adult learning organisation is for those who have completed their career or finished raising their family. It provides opportunities to learn new skills, pursue interests, form new friendships and have new experiences.
