  • Lovely to walk around with your dogs. Has a park for the kids and a cafĂ© on site that serves hot and cold food and drinks and ice-cream. There is also a golf pitch and putt course (for a price).
  • Nice place to have fun with all the family and friends. Plenty of space to run around, have a picnic, play miniature golf, swim and lots of nature walks.
  • Ideal place for family outings in a naturally beautiful area with plenty of open space and if you can find it an Iron Age Fort. Pitch and putt 9 hole course is maintained by ground staff and the water and streams are great for dogs to take a dunk in when hot. The park has well established woods bordering it on 3 sides and close by is Mill Wood with the newly restored wood mill area. At the top of the cliffs and in all you will find that the woods contain many naturally worn paths all are marked with orienteering posts. The paths are bordered with fallen branches, trunks and wild plants. These paths are often muddy so if you don't fancy it, best go by the main old road through the woods. A note to the disabled: The Mill Wood road/path passes through the centre of the wood but it is very rough, with lots of loose stone. Access to the wood is gained through a kissing gate at one end (Cwm Talwg) and between two posts which has had the gate removed. Ranger staff are there to help and advise should you need it. Disabled parking is available in the western car-park in the larger part of the park, by toilets and cafe (Marcos). Stunning Victorian viaduct sees passenger and coal trains pass over a number of times per day. Buzzards frequent the skies and there are rentable barbeques available.
  • Good family park. Pebble beach, Golf putting greens, playground, woods, cafe with good coffee, plenty of grass to run around on.
  • Beautiful large country park. It is popular with families, dog walkers and everyone else. Good little play area that suits lots of ages. Cafe on site can be a little expensive for food but does great ice creams. Toilets also next to cafe. You will be charged for parking on Sundays and bank holidays throughout the summer months. The pebble beach is full of fossils a d there is also a tiny golfing green.not crazy golf. This incurs a charge for clubs and balls.
