Millennium Coastal Park, Llanelli
Thousands of visitors a year are now making their way to south west Wales to discover the breathtaking Millennium Coastal Park.
Everyone who comes to the award-winning park leaves with a lasting memory of its scale and beauty.
In just over 10 years, the 22 kilometres of coastline along the Loughor estuary has been transformed into a unique array of tourist attractions, wildlife habitats and leisure facilities.
The park was created to celebrate the turn of the new millennium and was funded by the National Lottery, Carmarthenshire County Council, the former Welsh Development Agency, the Welsh Assembly and the European Union.
The aim was to convert over 1,000 hectares of industrial dereliction into an eye-catching landscape that would compliment and enhance the natural beauty of the estuary.
The project was colossal but the results are phenomenal. Over 200 years of industrial abuse have been swept away and replaced by a parkland paradise.
People now flock to the park for many different reasons - to take gentle exercise, participate in the many different events, enjoy their leisure pastimes or simply sit and watch the world go by. There really is something for everyone in the Millennium Coastal Park.
