Newland Park

The Park, which is adjacent to Penydarren High Street, was the home of the famous Dowlais White Tip, which was one of the oldest tips in town dating back to the earliest days of iron making in the late 18th Century.

The interpretation panels provide information on the history of the Park up until the present day, where it is now an appealing park area with four newly created Public Rights of Way, which provide enjoyable and easy to use urban footpaths, and gives you the opportunity to take in some breathtaking views of Merthyr Tydfil.

The Park area is also home to woodland blocks, grassland, two ponds and two area of developing heath. There is a small car park adjacent to the site and two bus stops to improve accessibility for those who don't live close to the park.
