Highlights


Welsh Water has worked closely with partners and the local community to create a hub for health and well-being whilst protecting the site’s biodiversity.


Lisvane and Llanishen Reservoirs is a natural resource of significant ecological value and encompasses two Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for waxcap fungi and overwintering birds.


Open-water swimming sessions are part of the watersports programme on Llanishen Reservoir which also includes sailing, canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.


Our brand new two-storey visitor centre offers spectacular views across the reservoirs and an exceptional dining experience in our cafe.


Nature

The mix of woodland, meadow and waterside habitats means the area is rich in wildlife. Find out about the birds, plants, insects and fungi abundant around the reservoirs.
