Aberdare Park, Aberdare (Rhondda Cynon Taf)

I used to go here practically weekly as a child/teenager as my cousins lived right by it and I forget how lovely a place it is, especially since it's had the new splash park!

Why Visit Aberdare Park?
  • One of the things that I like about Aberdare Park is that the playground is really spaced out so wherever you're perched you can see your little one playing (if they're at the age where they can be left to climb alone of course!) It's not the newest of playgrounds but there's plenty of different climbing frames, swings and a zip swing to suit all ages there.

  • There's a LOT of paved paths around the park that makes it a great place to go for a walk with a pram or take a bike. It's not completely flat but it's not at all steep.

  • The ducks and geese at the pond are very familiar with people and so they come right up to you if you have something to feed them - which is great if you like a duck, not so good if you're like me and petrified of them!!

  • There are new toilets there that are kept clean and a small shop selling hot drinks and snacks which is always handy if you have a snack monster like I do!

  • The splash park has had a revamp and is really lovely! It actually wasn't too busy when we were there either so that was an added bonus! The splash park has a small ice cream cart that sells some snacks and drinks too.

  • The park has lots of trees to climb and play hide and seek behind and I don't think I've ever been there and NOT seen a squirrel running about - which, to be fair, is a little exciting even as an adult!

  • There's parking all along the side of the park (turn right at the traffic lights to find this area)

So, if you're looking for a lovely place to go for a picnic or the stretch of the legs with friends (and all for free), then Aberdare park is definitely worth a visit.
