This is not a place that you would drive miles to visit but if you are staying in the area then give it a go.Teenagers might not find it exciting but it is a place for them to have a ball game or some might have a try on a rowing boat (if they are operating) whilst you enjoy a cupper during standard summer hours.Oh and some might appreciate the skate park - not me! Younger ones will certainly enjoy the play park and the ducks and swans.

I'm so lucky to be living close to the boating lake. It has improved alot since my younger days.
The new boathouse and café is what they needed and boats are reasonably priced for rides.
The park has new rides which is great..even brought back the big slide.
The big lake has alot of wildlife including some birds I haven't seen in the area before. Great place for fishing but make sure you have a license to do so.
Great family day out with the good weather. Bring a picnic and enjoy :-)

Beautiful place. Really good place to see the wildlife. Loads of ducks, more swans than id ever seen in my life at once and a couple of geese. Great place to take all ages especially the kids with the childrens play area. I was, however very disappointed to find there were no baby changing facilities, not even a surface to use in the ladies (obviously i can't comment on the gents) we had to change our 6 week old baby in the pushchair in full view of everyone.

Great little place in Cwmbran for a nice walk around the lake, feed the ducks, have a picnic (or BBQ in some areas), nice little park for the kids to play on, fields to kick a ball around and skate park for bmx/skateboards. Nice little café for teas/ice creams etc. Although it's called the boating lake, they are only out for a few weeks in the summer. Free car parking available. Enjoyable few hours :)

this is a good day out for children the boating lake has boats that are suitable for children along with very good seating areas and a shop within the boat house where you can buy teas ice cream and soft drinks there is a park which includes a BMX cycle track and swings and slides for the younger children along with ample park area for the family ball games and plenty of car parking spaces if you want to entertain the children for a few hours then this is well worth a visit
