This 700-metre undulating boulevard is a no-through road running off Swansea Road. There are no footpaths, but the grassy verges are well mowed and make a pleasant walk and easy viewing of the many floral examples in the gardens.

Flowers are the dominant sight on this walk with numerous specimens to delight flower lovers. Orange milkwort and everlastings stood out with their yellow blooms.
