The spectacular Botanic Gardens are based in the old walled garden of Singleton Park. The Gardens are renowned for their splendid displays of creative bedding schemes which are an inspiration to both dabbling amateurs and keen gardeners. The Ty’r Blodau building is a brand new education and visitor centre located in the heart of the Botanical Gardens.

The Gardens are on the Swansea Sustainability Trail and they showcase an example of a biomass boiler run on wood chip.
