To the end of the castle there are few visitor attractions, the extensive grasslands beneath Craig y Lodge and the lower park provide pasture for Margams herd of fallow, red and Pere David deer.
Of the Parks 850 acres over one hundred are forested. Some of the ancient forest remains, mainly sweet chestnut, beech, oak which line the slopes of Mynydd y Castell and along the stream above the fishpond. These trees are shown as mature specimens on paintings of the old seventeenth century Mansell house.
However most of the woodlands were planted to provide shelter, enhance
the landscape and provide shelter for the game.
