Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Pontypool Park is locally known as the Peoples Park, covering some 64 hectares with Italian Gardens, Britain's only double chamber Ice House, Folly Tower and Shell Grotto to explore! To be honest none of them are massively child friendly so you may well wish to engage them on some spotting style games or create a story as you're going along to make it a little more fun.
More child and activity friendly facilities include a children's adventure play area, rugby pitch (home to Pontypool RFC), tennis courts, pitch and putt, bowls and a dry ski slope plus a leisure centre in the grounds too! The Leisure Centre has a swimming pool, sports facilities, plus a cafe bar and Children's Treasure Island Soft Play Area so plenty to do if the rain sets in!
The grounds date back to 1703 and boasts the North's largest specimens of sweet chestnuts, right by the Gorsedd Stone Circle, also known as the Circle of Sacred Refuge, a part of bardic tradition. If you fancy bringing the history to life a bit for kids you can dress them in an appropriate colour for the ceremonies they used to hold here! A poet would wear a sky blue robe, a magical druid's robes would be white, and a science and learning oriented ovate's robe would be green.
