Attraction Information

Get ready for some outdoor fun, on two feet or two wheels, at Barry Sidings Countryside Park!

The stunning venue near Trehafod and is packed with trails to explore, as well as a popular BMX track, one of the best children's playgrounds around, a duck pond and picnic plus barbecue areas.

Many families take advantage of the park on a warm day, using the area's extensive network of cycle paths to pedal their way to the fun.

A game of football or Frisbee is always a must, before heading up to see the ducks at the pond or hanging out in the playground. A quick drink, snack or ice cream in the seasonal café is the perfect pit stop, before they explore the walks and trails that criss-cross the park. And what better way to end the day than with a picnic or even a barbecue?

Popular with cyclists, walkers and horse-riders alike, the park now has colourful new information points, thanks to Welsh Government funding, to help you explore.

From pathways leading into the shaded canopy of the surrounding forestry, to riverside walks to the nearby attractions of historic town Pontypridd and Rhondda Heritage Park Museum, there is something for everyone.

Barry Sidings has its own circular trail, where you can spot a wealth of wildlife, and is also part of the wider Pontypridd Circular, which takes you for miles over diverse terrain including rugged open spaces, historic sites and ancient woodlands.
