Parc Felindre is located just 5 miles from the vibrant city centre of Swansea, the commercial centre for South West Wales.
Swansea is growing, not only in terms of the quality of its environment and education, but also in terms of the growth of population and business. Attracting around 5 million visitors a year, Swansea is responding to the growing numbers of residents, new businesses and visitors by improving its city centre through an extensive programme of regeneration. Preparations are well advanced for the construction of the £120m Swansea Central Phase One scheme, featuring a new 3,500-capacity indoor arena. The scheme is planned as part of the Swansea City and Waterfront Digital District project, part funded by the £1.3 billion Swansea Bay City Deal which is regenerating the region with a series of high-profile projects.
The latest evidence of city centre evolution is the refreshing of Swansea Council’s 460-space St David’s multi storey car park. The facility is now open 24/7, has improved lighting, new ticket machines, more security and improved signage that highlights the proximity of neighbouring major attractions such as the LC leisure centre – complete with Wales’ biggest water park, the National Waterfront Museum, the Dylan Thomas Centre and the renowned Marina. Users of the car park get discounts in some attractions. In due course, Swansea Central Phase One will bring more than 900 new parking spaces.
Mark Thomas, the council's cabinet member for environment and infrastructure management, said:
"Swansea Central Phase One - with its arena, parkland, homes, commercial space and landmark bridge - is being built over the next two years. The St David's car park is convenient for some major attractions and we’re making it as simple as possible to use for the thousands of people who visit them every week. Including St David's there are more than 2,500 car park spaces within 10 minute walk of the LC and the National Waterfront Museum."
