The walk features include: a 200 hectare freshwater lake created by the construction of Cardiff Barrage; buildings old and new that have been refurbished/purpose built to meet the commercial, cultural, leisure and residential demands being made on the Bay; oodles of public art; a riverside park; and a Wetlands Reserve ideal for detoxing from modern-day life pressures. Though a short walk do allow yourself sufficient time as there are more watering holes and places of interest to visit than you'd care to wave a stick at!
