The once-popular Lisvane and Llanishen Reservoirs in Cardiff are to reopen as a visitor attraction later in July, Welsh Waters has confirmed. For the past seven years, Welsh Water has been working with partners and the local community to bring the reservoirs back into operational use.
On Friday, July 28, the site will be open to visitors, where they can enjoy exceptional food experiences, sport activities, walks and wildlife. The aim of the attraction is to create a hub for health and wellbeing, whilst protecting and enhancing the biodiversity of the site.
I will be driving down to Cardiff on Friday with the intention of visiting mum on Saturday morning. I was aware that the reservoirs existed when I was a boy, but only as a sort of urban legend the exact location of which was clouded in mystery. Perhaps I should try and pay the a visit when I am there?
