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, and also a Valleys Regional Park Embassy.

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

Rock UK also run canoeing, kayaking and raft building sessions in the Park.

 

The extended pavilion, at the entrance to the park, is the base for the Wardens and acts as an Environment and Heritage Centre, providing visitors with a wealth of information on the nature and history of the park. The building also provides space for community meetings and events.

 

"We believe that this will be one of the most successful projects in the whole of Wales in terms of transforming the environment for the local community and creating a range of facilities. The whole project has also been a model of effective team work by the local authority, the WDA and Groundwork Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taff."

Gwyn Griffiths (WDA Director of Land Reclamation for South East Wales) 1995
