New health and safety signage for writer's favourite park

Wayfinder safety signs are set to be part of a major redevelopment at Welsh writer Dylan Thomas' favourite park.

If Swansea Council approves the £820,000 project at Cwmdonkin Park, the work will begin next year, with an expected completion date of October 2014 – the centenary of Thomas' birth, NewsWales reports.

The municipal park, one of the oldest in Wales, is near Cwmdonkin Drive, where the poet spent his childhood, and it is the inspiration for his poem Hunchback in the Park.

If the work is approved, benefits will include signage, park benches, seating and new plant life.

Councillor Graham Thomas, the council's cabinet member for culture, recreation and tourism, said the park will be redeveloped as Swansea's heritage and visitor destination centre.

"It will not only commemorate a man who put Swansea on the world stage but it will also give the people of Swansea a lovely environment where they can relax and enjoy the surroundings," he told the news provider.

Thomas is perhaps best-known for his play Under Milk Wood.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800448273-ADNFCR
