Stunning walk
Apr 2019 • Family
We decided to go for a walk with our dogs after my niece recommended it as we live 5 minutes away.
It’s a lovely walk and many different paths to choose from to steep to not so steep!
There is a lake which wasn’t to deep so out dogs could swim and our little man could paddle.
With stunning views and plenty of space to let the dogs of the leads, it was perfect!

We went when it was a very hot day and it wasn’t busy at all.
Plenty of bins so no need to carry and it means they people actually pick up after there dogs!
It’s my new favourite place to walk the dogs.

Walk into the hills
Feb 2019 • Solo
The park itself is small with the stream and lake and small surrounding garden area, along with a free car park, but really it's just great because it's the start of the pathway up into the hills. Even a 10 minute walk up the zig zag path to the football pitch then along a couple of hundred metres to the right, past the bushes is enough to get a lovely view back across Blaengarw, the former mining town. I used to come here as a child to visit family, so I guess it holds extra sentimental value, but a walk in the peaceful mountains is always a treat.

Quiet, relaxing and natural.

The parc is in its infancy and still developing and maturing. Nevertheless the walks are beautiful with the many waterfalls and surrounding hills. The car park is more than adaquate with signposts and information. Well worth a visit

A bit boring, really

I don’t get what the hype is about with the reviews below. Decided to go for a walk, but there was hardly any path to walk on. Ended up on a cycling trail. The lake is alright but it’s very small. I wouldn’t go rushing back!

Just amazing. Need boots to go further on over the hills. Amazing views with a well built network of walks and paths, great feeling of achievement when you get to the top!

A great example of what can be achieved when reclaiming old coal mining areas. I walk here on a regular basis and am always impressed with the lakes, landscaping and the tranquility.

Stunning lakes and park area where the former pits used to be. Nice for a bike ride, walk, jog or just sitting and watching the ducks in the lake. Very tranquil at times.

Lovely place most times of the year
Nov 2016 • Family
Two lakes at different levels with a stream coming from the mountains running through it. Great place for walking and cycling, would give it five stars if it had a cafe but you can call into the local coop for refreshments which is on the edge of the park.
Great park to enjoy the beauty of wales from.

This place is so peaceful and great for evening walks and great for walking your dog. I took my 2 year old cousin for a walk down here and he loved feeding the ducks in the lake ad sitting on the bench watching the ducks.
