Hailey Park

Sophia Gardens to Hailey Park

(approx 2 miles 3.2km)

Going north from Sophia Gardens the Taff Trail stays alongside the River Taff.

Previously the trail turned left after the Cricket Ground to join a roadway through Pontcanna Fields.

Now you continue between the playing fields and the West side of the river to the bridge at Blackweir. Dismount to cross the bridge since there are usually lots of pedestrians and the bare timber bridge deck is very slippery when wet.

Follow the path on the East side of the river past Tesco to the subway and on through parkland to Llandaff weir opposite the Llandaff Rowing Club and on through to Hailey Park.

Hailey Park

Hailey Park is situated alongside the River Taff stretching for about a mile North from Llandaff. It has facilities for Tennis, Bowling, Rugby, Football and dog walking. This section of the River is used extensively by the Llandaff Rowing Club.

This is the pavilion at the Bowling Green.
