If you are looking for a fun family day out or something to do with your friends while in Cardiff then we have the solution for you! With our wide range of family-friendly activities, you and your group can enjoy getting on the water together and seeing all that Roath Park has to offer. For your little ones, our Kidz zone will provide them with all the fun they need while keeping them completely safe.


Our fleet of rowing boats are a fantastic way to explore the area and are of course a traditional activity that harkens right back to the area's victorian past. Whether it is rowing to the Scott Memorial Lighthouse or around the protected islands, home to a wide range of birds and wildlife there is plenty to see and do out on the water.

Pedalos are one of the easiest ways to explore the beautiful lakeside surroundings of Roath Park and what's more, they are simply tremendous fun. Our fleet of pedalos can accommodate up to four people at once and as such are a great way of bonding as a group as you take a leisurely trip across the water.

For those not wanting to pedal, our back seats allow you to sit back and let others do all the work - a particularly good tip for crafty parents looking to tire out their energetic children!

With a wide range of group options and pricing there really is something for everyone to enjoy. Come and visit us at the boathouse or get in touch via the website and see what we can do for your group.
