Bryngarw Country Park to receive £500,000 funding

We are delighted with today’s announcement that Awen Cultural Trust will receive the significant sum of £500,000 to invest in Bryngarw Country Park over the next 18 months. We have ambitious plans to further improve the visitor experience, whilst also enhancing our educational offer to even more schools and groups.

This summer we have seen a record number of visitors to Bryngarw, and we look forward to welcoming many more as we continue to improve our accessibility, inclusive play equipment, commitment to renewal energy sources and interpretation through the Park.

We want our visitors, from near and far, to have the opportunity to reconnect with their natural and cultural heritage whilst reaping the many health and wellbeing benefits associated with being outdoors in our beautiful Welsh countryside.

“We thank Welsh Government , Valleys Regional Park and Bridgend County Borough Council for recognising Bryngarw Country Park as a Discovery Gateway site and believing in our vision to realise Bryngarw’s true potential as a flagship Valleys destination” said Richard Hughes, Chief Executive of Awen Cultural Trust.
