  • Bute Estate spent £15,000 laying out 41 acres - 1854
    In March 1897 it "will be a place for public assembly for the people of Cardiff"
    24 acres landscaped by Alexander Roos as a Continental garden
    Opened to public to compensate for closure of the castle grounds
    First municipal park in Cardiff - pleasure ground, ornamental lake and walks, fountains and many other features now lost.
  • It began, as so often, by enclosure and exclusion - public prohibited in favour of deer.
    By 1873 it reached its peak with the work of Andrew Pettigrew
    But even the Butes' had to eat - in early 20th century they added a vegetable garden
    1947 some of the land was given other parts purchased with ratepayers money.
    In 1924 Council plans to drive a roadway through the park were defeated "an act of vandalism. In 2008 the Council gave itself permission to build a roadway and bridge for 40 ton lorries through Bute Park.
  • In 1860 intended to extend to Llandaff Cathedral acquired in 1879
    Laid out in 1901 - including features such as the Lime Avenue
    In 1947 swimming pool exists
    The avenue was cut by Western Avenue and the College developed on part of the parkland
    Llandaff Fierlds
    Vociferous local campaign in 1898 to prevent develop and bring into public ownership
    Contributors included the Thomsons who in 1912 gifted Thomson Park to the city
    Originally landscaped with fountain, pool, rockery and fern dell
