A Dogs Trail with Snoopy

Porthcawl

A Dog’s Trail is a spectacular, free public art trail pawing its way across South Wales in Spring 2022. For 10 weeks the city’s streets, Cardiff bay and park spaces will become home to a series of intricately decorated Snoopy sculptures, each designed by local, regional and national artists, designers and illustrators – both well-known favourites and newly emerging talent. The Snoopy sculptures will also be appearing across Caerphilly and Porthcawl.
