Cyfartha Castle Park

The park is free to visit, and the 150 acres of parkland mean that you will find that quiet spot should you wish to relax after the excitement of visiting the Cyfartha Splashpad, or need time to digest the wealth of knowledge from Cyfarthfa Castle Museum. 

All the woodland walks and nature rambles are accessible, and will introduce you to the variety of animal, bird and plant species that make Cyfarthfa Park so special.
