Cardiff based storyteller Tamar Williams has been commissioned by the Child Friendly City Team to create four bespoke story trails created across Cardiff parks. Leading children and their families through a curated series of “stop” points, meeting characters from Welsh myth and legend and hearing vignettes of their stories.
Trails are to encourage playfulness, fun, and authentic engagement with the story e.g. “finding” the next location, engaging tangibly with the outdoor space such as taking a bark rubbing/building something out of sticks, and discovering secret places in well-known Cardiff landmarks.
Stories will be made available in Welsh and English. Accessible through QR codes.
Trail one – Bute Park launched on St David’s Day 2021 will use the park sculptures as stop off points.
Trail two – Cardiff Bay launched 1st April 2021 will start at the Celtic ring and end at the barrage
Trail three – Forest Farm launched May 1st 2021 will take families around the nature reserve startingat the community rangers building
Trail four – TBC, launch date June 2021
