Aberdare Park

Reviewed By matagot - South Wales, United Kingdom

I’ve only visited Aberdare park during the autumn, so I’m yet to see it in full bloom during the spring and summer months. Despite this it’s still beautiful even during the autumn, and still worth a visit, no matter what time of the year. One of the main things I loved about this place was all the wildlife around, squirrels, geese... It’s a peaceful place, though I have no idea if it’s the same during the warmer months! I’m definitely looking forward to visiting again soon. Recommended to all who may be in or visiting the area.

Reviewed By matagot - South Wales, United Kingdom

I’ve been meaning to see Dare Valley Park for a while after seeing it signposted on the A465, so yesterday I finally made the time for a visit. It has beautiful wooded scenery and is much bigger than I previously thought, we spent a good 2 hours walking around and seeing all the wildlife. There were dozens of squirrels around and the place was full of birdsong. There are a few waterfalls (more than I expected!) and it’s also not too far from Aberdare town centre, within walking distance in fact. The only downside was the cafe wasn’t open due to covid, so I plan on visiting again post pandemic as my sister and her partner both say the cafe is very much worth a stop. Overall it’s a wonderful place for walks and for being close to nature, I’ll definitely be visiting again in the future.

Four Falls Trail

Reviewed By 326azizulg - Barking, United Kingdom

We parked midway, so it was a quick walk to the first of the four waterfalls. Car park is located here: Ystradfellte Road, Pontneddfechan, Neath SA11 5US. We only hoped to see two of the waterfalls, but ended up trekking the Four Falls Trail. Anyone doing this trail, my advise is take Four falls trail all the way down to the 4th water fall and than take the Link Trail back up. This is the easier option and avoids a steep climb up steps.

Robertstown Tramway Bridge

Reviewed By Y4583CIgregt - Aberdare, United Kingdom

This bridge has now been closed off by a perminant railings across the front of it ! Maybe dangerous to cross ? But the local council need to sort this out and repair anything that needs to be repaired as this is an iconic pice of local history and should not be left to fall into a state of disrepair !
