Walking is a popular leisure activity and is supported by a number of groups in Lisvane and in the wider Cardiff and South Wales area. A separate web-page acts as a link to those groups and we hope to add specific details of walks if there is sufficient interest. Click here to go to the Walking Groups in South Wales links page which will guide you to the latest information. There is also a folder containing leaflets with local walks programmes in the Cabin Library. The Graig Protection Society has produced a booklet called "Footpaths Around Lisvane" and organises regular walks of a local interest and the Friends of Coed y Felin and Friends of Parc Cefn Onn also hold occasional walks in their venues. The Nant Fawr Trail extends through Lisvane via Coed y Felin to Parc Cefn Onn. For further information click here to  download the leaflet.
