Situated on Penglais Hill at the north end of town, Parc Penglais offers peaceful woodland walks and excellent views of the town.
Once part of the Penglais Estate, the woodland has been donated to the town by the University. A network of footpaths criss-cross the park which is a combination of beech woods and an old quarry.
The woodland is, as you'd expect, home to a range of wildlife with a reputation for fine displays of bluebells in the spring. The park is worth a visit at any time of year, however, due to the fantastic views over the town. From the promenade to Penparcau, just about all of the town can be surveyed from the old quarry.
Ceredigion County Council designated Parc Penglais their first nature reserve in 1996.
Routes in to the park include:
