Nice wail around the boating lake and also a coffee or icecream if you feel the need. On a Sunday their are people sailing their RC model boats on the lake which is interesting to watch. The grand children enjoy feeding the ducks and swans.

Cwmbran boating lake is a lovely morning out - kids love all the park rides, lots of grass around for a picnic. A good ice cream shop (which takes card!) and toilet facilities and also easily wheelchair accessible.

I don't know. I suggest you ring Cwmbran council who will refer you to the relevant department for Health and Safety.There were no boats on the lake when I last visited.
