Quiet park but a bit of a hidden gem
Aug 2021
This lovely green gem in the middle of Pontypridd, with the Taff's River on one side is a nice relaxing park with quite a few amenities and history for all the family. It is just off th north south road A470 but its difficult to find close parking. For the family there is a park and small lido with a cafe selling the usual fare. The staff are lacking in any obvious charm and behave in a lacklustre manner so do the right 5hing and avoid buying! That saying is a nice interlude and introduction to the area.

Park is lovely as always however give the cafe a miss. It's grim. The staff don't care and they don't want to be there.
Really bad.

Lovely place

This is a lovely park. A really peaceful haven amongst the hustle of a busy town, No littler. Wonderful playground for kids, swimming pool, bowls, tennis and beautiful kept areas to explore or just sit and think.

This place is quite a find! Between the large park , walks, tennis courts and pool you want be disappointed. Really entertaining for all ages. I did find parking quite difficult but they gave built a new bridge to access the park . However it’s still a fair walk. It’s not accommodated for the disabled. It has a on site cafe which is a bonus and toilets.

Hidden gem
Aug 2020 • Family
After having a great breakfast at the Cafe Royale we decided to go for a walk around the beautiful park. The park is well maintained and has plenty of green space for couples and families to enjoy a picnic. I think that the park had only recently reopened due to the floods and Covid restrictions. Despite this the park looked magnificent and the children's play area was very inviting. I am not sure if the pool was open. There are also tennis courts and is a great place for people who like walking. It is a facility that can be enjoyed by everyone. Will definitely be visiting again.

This park is one of the jewels of Pontypridd, a large green area accompanied by sunken gardens, well-maintained flower beds, and a little uns’ play area. Lido Ponty is at the centre of the park - book your space quickly once it reopens as it’s constantly busy! Some history in the park with the monument for Evan James and James James (who were responsible for creating the national anthem of Wales) and the war memorial. All around well-maintained green space and a nice place to sit by the River Taff. It's a nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

Great park with lots of space and facilities
Aug 2019 • Couples
Great park with loads of nice walks and playgrounds and the Lido offering an outdoor swimming pool and indoor cafe.

Always a pleasure to visit the park for both adults and children, would recommend to everyone to go for a visit.

Free car parking nearby on Sundays.

Not friendly towards disabled or wheelchair access
May 2019 • Couples
Lido pool lovely but you don't get much time there. Cafe is expensive and poor quality. The staff can't be asked half the time.
I live very close to this park but I am not able to use it most of the time because there is no parking for disabled. Access is terrible, I have to use crutches or some times cannot walk at all due to constant chronic pain and need a wheelchair or mobilty scooter. Im only young and would love to use the park more. There is council car spaces but not for disabled. There is plenty of room, so why don't the council make it more friendly for people who have a hard enough time getting about. It's not much to ask! The park is lovely but unfortunately there is a blind spot where the council is concerned when it comes to the minority that need extra help. Why they did not have a disabled representative at the committee when they redeveloped the park I do not know.I hope the council have considered the extra parking, taffic and disabled access for the new shopping centre... probably not. The town centre pavements are a joke, it looks like crazy paving with nothing matching, the amount of money spent and this is the best they could do!! The people in ponty are lovely and deserve better!!!
