The Reserve of 32 acres (13 hectares) in the lower Rhymney valley Penylan, Cardiff and is only a mile and a half from Cardiff City centre. It is a wildlife oasis of woodland, wildflower meadow, ponds and reedbeds. Remarkably the reserve was a domestic refuse tip in the early 1970's. Although a large proportion of the site had been used as a landfill site, much of the relict estuarine vegetation still exists and forms a major feature within the Reserve. The Friends' Group formed in 1989, by an enthusiastic group of local residents, work with Cardiff County Council to further improve the Reserve. Works continue today to develop Howardian LNR for its wildlife interest and public enjoyment. A good network of paths now weave between the great variety of habitats that are packed with interesting flora and fauna. Interesting plants include Bee, Common Spotted, Southern Marsh and Butterfly Orchids, Twayblade, Broad-leaved Helleborine, Grass Vetchling and Celery-leaved Buttercup.
