    The Fair Oak circa 1890 and a modern day view of the site of the tree within Roath Pleasure Gardens

    The Fair Oak (Y Dderwen deg) was an ancient oak tree beside the stream at the north east corner of the Pleasure Garden. In recent times it has been known as the Fairoak and it is the origin of the names for Fairoak Farm and Fairoak Road. The Parks Superintendent, William Pettigrew, believed the tree to be some 500 or 600 years old in 1905:

    The most venerable of all the living objects in the whole of the Roath Park is to be seen in this section [the Pleasure Garden]. This is the old Oak which is growing close beside the brook in the north-east corner of the ground, the branches of which partly overhang the brook and partly the outside public road..... It has been computed that this tree is between 500 and 600 years of age, and it is a matter for regret that such a beautiful and interesting object is not growing in a better and more prominent position in the park.

    The above photograph was taken before Roath Park existed, though Ninian Road and Ty Draw Road were under construction in early 1890.] The route of Ty Draw Road crosses at the bottom, left to right, close to the Fair Oak. Fairoak Road is seen crossing the brook via the bridge on the right hand side of the picture.

    Towards the middle left is the spire of Cathays Cemetery chapel and the white cottage to its right was called Cyndda. The fenced roadway at the bottom right is probably a service road used to build the railway embankment. Fairoak Farm is not visible, but would be off the bottom right of the photograph.

    In October 1925 the Chief Parks Officer (A.A. Pettigrew) reported the death of the Fair Oak to the Parks Committee. Pettigrew also wrote that when it was cut down the lower part of the trunk and some branches were allowed to remain at the site as a relic.]
