Dylan Thomas's revamped Cwmdonkin Park a 'jewel'

A Victorian park made famous by poet Dylan Thomas is being officially reopened after a £1.4m refurbishment.

The project at Cwmdonkin Park, close to the poet's Swansea childhood home, has been completed ready for next year's 100th anniversary of his birth.

A special performance of Thomas's play for voices Under Milk Wood is being performed to mark the event.
