About Parc Bryn Bach Activity Centre
Parc Bryn Bach is a beautiful local nature reserve conveniently situated just off the A465 in the heart of the South Wales Valleys, Tredegar. It is set in 340 acres of mixed grass and woodland with a 36-acre lake as its focal point.
You can enjoy many activities at the park for all ages and abilities.
Water activities include open water swimming, kayaking, canoeing and SUP, including tiki boarding so you can enjoy the open water with friends and family.
On land, the park is the perfect place to hone your rock climbing skills on our climbing wall, or why not try caving in our static caving container, an ideal way to start your caving journey. Cycling facilities at Parc Bryn Bach include mountain bike trails and recreational routes linking to the national Sustrans network.
The lakeside path is an ideal location for jogging or speed walking, the footpath is also dotted with various exercise stations for those feeling more energetic. Or you can try your hand at bush craft to enhance your understanding of the natural environment.
Our expert instructors also provide off-site activities. These include rock climbing, abseiling, SUP, coasteering, gorge walking, hill walking, moorland and coastal walking, orienteering, mountain biking and bush craft activities. All of which take place in different parts of the wonderful Welsh countryside and coastal areas.
Parc Bryn Bach provides the perfect family day out. Our visitor centre is home to the Lake View cafe - a licensed restaurant serving delicious hot and cold meals with indoor and outdoor seating. You will find a well-stocked tourist information centre and gift shop.
You can enjoy a game of mini golf, footgolf and improve your swing at the driving range. Our go-karts provide a fun way to explore the park and the park also provides a fabulous play area for children to explore and release their excess energy.
Our caravan site sits next to the lake offering great view of the park. There are also picnic areas and nature trails surrounding the lake.
Wildlife at the park is diverse and thriving. Waterfowl are abundant and many species can be seen throughout the changing seasons. A special area has been set aside for attracting lapwings to the park that will hopefully soon be home to a resident breeding colony. It is hard to believe that in 1980, this was an industrial wasteland, exploited by the excavation of coal. Now Parc Bryn Bach is a beautiful nature reserve enjoyed by locals, visitors and wildlife.
