Here are two images of the town’s famous Botanical Gardens in Grange Road, opposite Rhyl High School & Rhyl Leisure Centre. The black-and-white postcard is said to be from early 1960s; the other picture has the feel of late 1970s about it.

In recent years the cafe in Botanical Gardens has been run by Rhyl South West Central Residents’ Association (RSWCRA) and much improvement to the gardens has taken place. A short history of the place is on the BBC Wales North East web site: http://bit.ly/8okm5
