Perfect parks to picnic, play and explore!

From beautiful little spaces away from the busyness of life, to huge country parks spanning hundreds of acres, relaxation and fresh air is a walk in the park in Rhondda Cynon Taf. Dare Valley, Clydach Vale and Barry Sidings are all huge country parks with on-site cafés, walks and more. Ynysangharad War Memorial and Aberdare Park are packed with fun for children, open spaces for nature lovers and history. Between them, they have the National Lido of Wales, Aquadare splash pad, adventure playgrounds - and even a boating lake with paddle boats.
