A Big hello from Celtic's ADOS

Posted by April Pugh on 23-May-2019 14:57:15

All about me! 

Hello! I’m Louise. I joined Celtic English Academy 2 months ago as Assistant Director of Studies. I have been very busy working in the academic office and teaching in class since I started and I’ve loved every minute so far! Both staff and students have been amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome!

Background:  I have been teaching English for over 11 years now. I started teaching in Barcelona where I lived from 2008 to 2014. I moved back to the UK after this time and worked in an English academy in Salisbury for just over 4 years.

Victoria Park - Cardiff's Victorian Zoo

Posted by Marie Davies on 23-May-2019 14:28:00

Cardiff is home to 330 parks and gardens including Bute Park, Roath Park and Gorsedd Gardens.

Today, find out about Victoria Park and it's interesting history!

  

Opening times: 07:30 - 30 minutes before sunset

How to get there: Cardiff Bus 17 & 18 from Westgate Street to Victoria Park

 

Victoria Park is one of Cardiff's best-loved parks. But it hasn't always been a park...

 

Victoria Park Zoo; 1908

Victoria Park was once a zoo housing interesting animals from all over the world such as crocodiles, armadillos and a monkey called "Jack". But most interesting of all was a male seal called "Billy" who joined the zoo in 1915. However it wasn't until Billy died that it was discovered it was a female seal! 

You can see the statue of Billy the seal in Victoria Park.

 

Splashpad and Sports in the Park

As well as the fascinating history of the park for visitors to discover, there is also plenty of activities to get involved with!

For children, there's the Splashpad; an outdoor water park and pool located where the Victorian pond would have been. The tennis courts, football fields and beach volleyball courts make it a perfect place to enjoy the warm summer evenings with friends.

The Bandstand 

The beautiful structure in the centre of the park called The Bandstand dates back to 1897. It was used for musicians to perform in the park to the public.

It is still occasionally used for musicians to perform, but also for local people to meet up and dance.

Why not take a walk around Victoria Park to see the beautiful flowerbeds, the wonderful structures and take part in some fun activities.
