- Railway and Transport Attractions
Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
Cyfarthfa Park has 150 acres of woodland walks and gardens to explore as well as plenty of added extras for the kids to remember.
A new Family Adventure Play Zone and Interactive Splash Pad is located next to a nicely modern but sympathetically designed Visitor Centre with cafe. There is also a 1000ft miniature railway to enjoy which has a wheelchair friendly coach too! The railway route takes you past scenic Cyfarthfa Lake, around the little island, past the Castle and down the drive, concluding at the Pandy Clock. A pleasing little jaunt suitable for all ages.
It's a nice educational point that the Canolfan Cyfarthfa community centre on site here features splendid modern environmental supply sources including Ground Source Heat Pumps, Rain Water Harvesting system and a living Sedum Roof!
And finally there's a new 9 hole golf course to enjoy too: bear in mind however that it doesn't state that it's a mini of crazy golf course meaning we have to assume that it's a standard sort, so best to take kids who are a bit older or have tried their hand fairly successfully at pitch and putt before.
