The Sounds of Cwmdonkin Park

There are a number of different features to Cwmdonkin Park in Swansea and if it was anything like it is now in Dylan Thomas’ time, then it is hardly surprising that he liked the place.

All the photos I have posted this week from my recce walk of the park have been take on my iPhone and I look forward to returning with my full StillWalks production kit. I had the kit in the car when I was there but neither had the time nor the inclination to go and get it!

Noise pollution – Too much of my time in the park was spent with the aural backdrop of somebody from the parks department using a leaf blower! I cannot think of a more irritating source of noise pollution.

There are two sound clips here, tell me which you prefer.

These and two other clips can also be listened to on SoundCloud.

  1. lol….will listen later. Kiddos are sleeping now. Did not want you to think I just ignored your request. 🙂 See ya!!

  2. I actually prefer the first one. The pollution is distant and is in such a way that can be blotted out mentally, whereas the second has sounds coming and going which is harder to blot out and is much more irritating – in my opinion
