Six-time recipient of the Green Flag Award Ynysangharad War Memorial Park, situated in the centre of Pontypridd is definitely worth a visit.

It's a picnic spot, a walking spot, an exploring spot and so much more.

New to the park is Lido Ponty, a stunning restoration of the Grade II listed Lido which has stood in the park since the 1920s. Now the National Lido of Wales, Lido Ponty offers swimming, splash pool and water-based fun for all.

The new adventure play area, Lido Play captures the imagination of our younger visitors as they explore the swings, slides and tunnels in this locally themed park celebrating our industrial past. 

As if this wasn't enough, golf and tennis lessons, year-round fun and games for children, expansive open spaces and exercise classes for all ages are just a selection of the other services that make the historical location well worth a visit.

The Park also offers a wide range of facilities, including pitch and putt golf course, bowling greens, football, cricket pitches and tennis courts, bandstand and refreshment kiosks.

The Park contains a wide range of specimen trees and shrubs, as well as colourful seasonal planting. This historic park is the home to the Evan and James James memorial, composers of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau ('Land of my Fathers') and the memorial to two World Wars and the Falklands War..
