The garden comprises of four wildflower areas with a different mixture of seed in each, either from the towns themselves, or that have a connection to their countries. Each wildflower bed has a bi-lingual interpretation board explaining the town twinning ethos, and a short description of each of our twin towns.


There are four flagpoles flying the twin town flags, and one flying the Vale of Glamorgan Council flag.
