  • Over the past few years a lot of work has been taking place and things can only get better, its safe to walk dogs and children. Take a camera you never know what pictures you will get  more »
  • People on bikes are not allowed, but most people give zero cares. Very irritating when walking dogs and children!  more »
  • Went last week and was very disappointed. I go quite regular for the photography and now over the last couple of months seems to have just been left unattended. Fences behind the first hide knocked do...  more »

  • One of Wales' best kept secrets. Located just on the outskirts of Cardiff this beautiful country park is a breath of fresh air. With lots to do & see for all ages. Many places here like the unspoilt woodlands are a real pleasure to see & walk through. With some of the finest tree species around. Visit it or miss out.
  • A nice place to go for a walk and see the outdoors. We were looking for somewhere to have a picnic - this is not it. Scenery was very nice though and the canal was quote historic!
  • Nice little place to have a short or long walk. You can just walk by old Glamorgan canal or go onto the Taff trail if you want to go further. There are multiple access points with adequate parking. There are a few picnic benches by one of the parking spots near the rugby club but that's it.
  • Wonderful place for walking with family along the old Glamorganshire canal through SSSI woodland. Much local wildlife to be seen including blue jays, herons and the very hungry (and vocal) mallard ducks.
  • Best place to see kingfishers. Virtually guaranteed. Several bird hides in various locations. Friendly and knowledgeable rangers. Kids activities available.
