Although walking distance from the town centre, this park is quiet and peaceful. Smashing walks and great for children. The flowerbeds are lovely during the Summer months.

So lucky to live two minutes walk from this historical park. it has some amazing features, the fountain being one, and the boating lake, complete with boats that bring back memories of my childhood. Well worth a visit.

Aberdare park is lovely for an evening stroll. The park is kept mostly nice and clean and is quiet and peaceful most evenings.

I go to the park most mornings with my granddaughter, I push her around the park in her buggy, I normally do 10 laps of the park, then take her on the swings and slides.
