Whitchurch Library Gardens occupies the triangular plot of land at the junction of Merthyr Road and Velindre Road. This land was acquired by the Parish Council in 1899 and converted to a recreation ground, following which the Council approached the Carnegie Trust for a grant to build a public library on part of the site. The application was successful and the library building was completed in late 1904. The remainder of the site continued as a public garden.
