Our path network provides excellent linkages between the local villages of Treharris, Trelewis, Nelson and Bedlinog. They are well used by walkers, dog owners and walking groups.

Walkers looking for more of a challenge can link up to the Taff Trail, which runs between Cardiff and Brecon, or can join the historic Trevithick Trail, which extends from Tramroad, Merthyr Tydfil to Navigation, Abercynon.


There are a number of cycle routes within the Park, which link to both the local area and the national cycle network. The Celtic Trail runs through the park, allowing access to the Summit Centre to the north and access to the Taff and Trevithick Trails to the south.

Horse Riding

A bridle way runs through the length of the park and is clearly marked.


The Navi FC play their home matches on the park and use the pavilion changing facilities for their matches. We are also exploring the opportunitites for a 3G pitch on the site, a Business Plan is currently in development.


Fitness enthusiasts are well catered for on the park. The "trim trail" is a collection of steel exercise stations located around the edge of the football pitch and is available to all users. This area, and the surrounding pathway, is used weekly for a fitness class run by Communities First and Taff Bargoed Fitness
