PORTHKERRY PARK,

PORTHKERRY PARK, Porthkerry Park may, perhaps, be designated one of the most beautiful and grotesque holiday spots in the greater portion of the county; equalled only in the neighbourhood of Barry by the charming park at Cwrtyrala. The drive from Barry Railway Station to the park at Porthkerry is a most delightful one, the distance being less than two miles, along a beautifully wooded road- way, and abundantly studded along by aspects of sea and landscape scenery of the most lovely and diversified character. In the park are expansive slopes of greensward, and although the public have no specific right to its use, still, through the generosity of the owners, the members of the Roinilly family, the park is readily thrown open to all comers, especially during the summer months, when Barry is visited by hundreds and thousands of pleasure and holiday seekers. At the extreme end of the* Park from Barry is the pretty little Parish Church of Porthkerry, standing on an eminence over- looking the fine mansion, belonging to the Romilly family, the present occupier of which is Couuty Councillor John Cory, J.P. On the roadside leading from the Park to Porthkerry-ro.id, is the Rectory, tenanted by the Venerable Rector, Canon Allen. The Park abounds with spots lending a diversity of interest and enjoyment to the visitors, and in making these passing references to a scource of attraction which the people of the Barry district are naturally and justly proud of, we feel prompted to express a hope that at some future time, ere many years have elapsed, the local authorities may take steps to acquire, if possible, the lovely park at Porthkerry for public purposes of recreation and enjoyment.
