Pettigrew Parks-The Family Who Landscaped Cardiff
Cardiff is a city with lots of green spaces. It is
famous for parks and wins prizes for the
environment here. I want to tell you a story about Cardiff’s parks and where they come from.

My name is Andrew Pettigrew and I lived a long time ago in
Cardiff. I came from Scotland to work here in 1873 when
Queen Victoria was on the throne. I was the Head Gardener
for the Marquess of Bute, the richest man in the world who
lived at Cardiff Castle, and owned many other parts of Cardiff.
