Cwm Clydach Countryside Park

Clydach Vale, CF40 2XX

This oasis of calm, wildlife and stunning views has been created from the blackened scar of a coal mine.

CwmClydach Countryside Park is an area of natural beauty which offers a range of walks, as well as the chance to spot Kingfishers, herons, butterflies, newts and more.

There are two lakes, referred to locally as the “top lake” and “bottom lake” as well as waterfalls. Enjoy a gentle stroll around the lake and feed the ducks, before enjoying a drink and snack at the on-site cafe, or explore further into the countryside and mountains that surround the park.
