I absolutely love this park, it's such a refreshing place to walk around and it so family orientated. The circumstance of the lake is 1.2 miles so great to get the little ones tired! Had a lovely small park for younger children to play and a nice little cafe to warm yourself up and a winters day. Highly recommend

Always a nice couple of hours to walk around the pond, feed the ducks and to let the children play in the park

Outstanding Park and could one of the best in South Wales, but sadly it is not. A very popular park, with walkers, runners, any one wanting to do a bit of exercise, of all ages. With a Camping, Caravan section, Crazy golf for the kids and a 9 hole golf course. With a beautiful lake, a restaurant which as just... More

Thank you for the review Donna, we do our best to clean up after the geese, but with so many of them on site it can be difficult. Thank you for your patience and support. More

I visit Bryn Bach park regularly and find that there are a lot of activities going on, the restaurant is good value for money, the one thing I find is the events and activities are not advertised enough locally.
