The millennium coastal path is a 22km long path running along the Loughor estuary. Along the path are many features including play parks, a train line, a rugby pitch and a discovery centre.
This is a wonderful place to visit with your family, especially on a warm sunny day like we had. We are very much looking forward to taking our children down to the path to learn to ride their bikes, as the pathway is so smooth and wide open.
There are several long and short stay car parks along the pathway which are pay and display and are not too expensive. We always park at the Discovery Centre as we know that there are toilets there. Toilets close by are necessary when out with our three year old son, which I am sure other families will find useful.
The Discovery centre is a place where you can go and find out about all the leisure attractions that Carmarthenshire has to offer. In the centre there is a café, toilets and a kiosk which serves the most beautiful ice cream.
After visiting the Discovery centre we then went on a beautiful walk along the sea wall and then across to Sandy Water Park. You can walk around the lake where you will see all different types of birds. We have seen Cormorants, Mute Swans and Canada Geese enjoying the lake. There is a lovely little pub called the sandpiper where you can stop to have a spot of lunch and look over the beautiful views that surround the lake.
The path carries on after the lake and takes you past the old rugby goal posts which once stood at Strade Park, the former home of the Llanelli rugby team.
We then walked down the pathway and along the side of a train track. My son was very excited to see the trains going past.
You can carry on until you reach Burry Port or even Pembrey Country Park. We turned back shortly after we reached the train line as my son started to fall asleep on his trike, we decided to head back to the Kiosk for a famous Joes ice cream!
