Our Green Flag award-winning Bryngarw Country Park offers a fantastic day out with things for the whole family to enjoy.

Whether you’re looking for a place to picnic, a nature walk to follow, or space for the children to run off any energy in the fresh air, we have it all! Our play area with its ‘famous’ tower slide and inclusive swing, roundabout and trampoline are particularly popular with younger visitors, while the grown-ups enjoy a takeaway treat from our café. There’s also space to sit inside on rainy day, as well as our visitor centre offering interactive digital displays and hands-on activities.

It’s possible to spend a whole day exploring Bryngarw, so with parking at just £3.50, it offers great value for money! To enhance your visit with an event, head to our website. We have ranger-led activities, outdoor theatre performances on the lawn and some great professional storytelling trails.
