Parks & Playgrounds

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council is custodian to 619 hectares of publicly owned open space.

We believe it is important to look after, protect, and develop our parks and public open spaces ranging from Cyfarthfa Park to our small playgrounds and "doorstep" spaces within our residential areas.


Our parks, sports fields, play areas and school grounds all add to the network of green spaces which contributes to the character of the County Borough. They foster local pride and make a key contribution to the image of the County Borough.

Parks and open spaces are for the benefit of everyone, and the use and enjoyment of our public spaces will ensure their future success.

Times have changed and peoples expectations are far higher than ever before. The demand is for the whole family, for the very young teenagers,adults and senior citizens.

We provide various amenities throughout the County Borough Including 5 Recreational Parks, 32 Sports playing fields, 5 Bowling greens and 57 Playgrounds throughout the County Borough.
