Cyfartha Castle Park

Cyfarthfa Park has a lot to offer for those interested in a family day out in the fresh air!



The park is free to visit, and the 150 acres of parkland mean that you will find that quiet spot should you wish to relax after the excitement of visiting the Cyfarthfa Splashpad, or need time to digest the wealth of knowledge from Cyfarthfa Castle Museum.

All the woodland walks and nature rambles are accessible, and will introduce you to the variety of animal, bird and plant species that make Cyfarthfa Park so special.


The gardens are regularly maintained, and every effort is made to keep them in the manner befitting the Crawshay home, one reason why the spot is so popular for wedding photography!

Parc Taf Bargoed

Parc Taf Bargoed is the hidden gem of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough. It is situated in the Taff Bargoed Valley between Trelewis, Treharris and Bedlinog.


The former colliery site has been regenerated as a haven for wildlife and a centre for community activities.

Parc Taf Bargoed is a Green Flag Park.

The park has facilities for walkers, cyclists and horse riders and is the home of Aberfan Canoe Club and Parc Taff Bargoed Anglers Club.
