The weather’s getting better… the days are getting longer and we’ve been couped up for too long, it’s time to get out and about and enjoy Swansea Bay again!

We’ve come up with a special Swansea Spring to-do list for you to complete, hopefully you’ll find yourself doing something new or going somewhere unfamiliar but most of all, having fun.


1. Find a blue plaque – there are a few in the city centre.

2. Take a picnic with a view – it could be high up on a hill, next to a river, in a park or on the beach.

3. Be an eco champion – litterpick! That’s right, take a bag out with you next time you visit the beach or head to the park and pick up a few pieces of rubbish, you’ll feel good that you’ve helped the environment and our area will look better, just imagine if we all did it!

4. Dip your toes in the sea or a shallow stream. We’re lucky to live in such a beautiful area, embrace nature and get a little buzz of adrenaline from the cold water.

5. Visit a new park. We have lots of lovely parks all over Swansea, go and explore! You can find a list of all the parks and green spaces here and playgrounds here.

6. Treasure! Find a piece of sea glass or driftwood or a nice shell on a beach. You shouldn’t take stones, sand or any shells with living creatures in – it’s against the law!

7. Visit the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea Museum and National Waterfront Museum. Take a look at the latest collections or book yourself in to an activity. They’re all lovely buildings in their own right, take a walk around them and admire the architecture.

8. Check out the new arena and coastal park, sit in the sun and admire the modern landscaping.

9. Visit your local library, there’s always something going on, workshops, talks, displays – and did you know you can take up to 20 books out at a time? Wow!

Off you go, enjoy!
