Cardiff Bay Retail Park
The Cardiff Bay Retail Park in Grangetown, Cardiff was once the site of the Ferry Road landfill site. It was built in around 1997. It is currently home to businesses which include Asda, Boots Group and Argos. There have been many turnovers in businesses, yet new phases are still being added.
The retail park is built on the edge of a former Ferry Road refuse site, which closed in 1994 after being filled with 4 million cubic metres of commercial and domestic rubbish. The ownership of the land passed to Cardiff Bay Development Corporation who created the retail park on an area of industrial units to the east of the site. Grangemoor Park was created opposite the retail park on the 20 metre hill landscaped on the old refuse site.
