Parc Bryn Bach is a beautiful local nature reserve conveniently situated just off the A465 in the heart of the South Wales Valleys. It is set in 340 acres of mixed grass and woodland with a 36-acre lake as its focal point.

This stunning landscape is the perfect family day out and our visitor centre is home to the Lakeside cafe - a licensed restaurant serving delicious hot and cold meals. You will find a well stocked tourist information centre and gift shop here.

The park provides many activities both on and off the lake including open water swimming, kayaking and SUP. Cycling facilities at Parc Bryn Bach include mountain bike trails and recreational routes linking to the national Sustrans network. The lakeside path is an ideal location for jogging or speed walking, the footpath is also dotted with various exercise stations for those feeling more energetic. You can enjoy a game of mini golf, go Go-Karting and get better views of the park with our climbing wall. The park has a 9 hole golf course and target driving range. Footgolf is available and, during with winter months, you can enjoy a game of night golf.

The park also provides a fabulous play area for children to explore and release their excess energy.

The 42 pitch caravan and campsite sits next to the lake offering great view of the park. There are also picnic areas, a playground, orienteering courses and nature trails surrounding the lake. Wildlife at the park is diverse and thriving. Water fowl are abundant and many species can be seen throughout the changing seasons. A special area has been set aside for attracting lapwings to the park that will hopefully soon be home to a resident breeding colony. It is hard to believe that in 1980, this was an industrial wasteland, exploited by the excavation of coal. Now Parc Bryn Bach is a beautiful nature reserve enjoyed by locals, visitors and wildlife.
