Are dogs allowed in Bryngarw?

We politely ask that dogs are kept on a lead in the main areas of the park and that you pick up and dispose of dog waste in the bins provided.
What time is the café open?
Our café is open at 10am until 4.30pm from April to September and at 10am until 3.30pm from October to March.
Are bikes allowed in the park?
Yes! However, we kindly ask that cyclists only use the designated cycle track.
There is a National Cycle Network route (number 884) which starts at Bryngarw Country Park and finishes in Blaengarw. It is mainly traffic free so perfect for families to follow.
Do you sell car parking season tickets?
Yes, annual passes are available to purchase from our café for £42.
Passes are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
Why do we have to pay to park in Bryngarw?
Bryngarw is managed by Awen Cultural Trust, a registered charity (number 1166908). The car parking income we receive is reinvested back into the Country Park, to make it a beautiful place to visit all-year-round. With 113 acres to explore, and great facilities to enjoy, we feel that £3.50 for a whole day offers excellent value for money. We accept cash and contactless card payments.
Can we feed the ducks?
Feeding the ducks at Bryngarw is a lovely family tradition that helps young children connect with nature.
You are welcome to feed the ducks, but we would prefer if you didn’t feed them bread. Instead, please consider bringing oats, sweetcorn, peas, or other seeds with you, as these are much healthier for them.
Is the play area suitable for small children?
We have play equipment which is suitable for all ages and abilities. Adult supervision should be provided at all times.
Is there any play equipment for disabled children?
We are committed to providing inclusive play opportunities for all children, and in recent years we have invested in accessible equipment including a wheelchair swing, basket swing and roundabout.
You can also find a PECS® board in the car park for visual support.
Is B-Leaf open to the public?
B-Leaf is open to the public from Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm. Their summer bedding stock and hanging baskets are on sale from the end of May to early August, but some shrubs and plants are available to buy all-year-round.
B-Leaf also sells Christmas trees and festive plants in early December. We are grateful to customers who support B-Leaf, a work-based programme for adults with learning disabilities, through their purchases and donations.
How do I find out about holding weddings, corporate events and special occasions at Bryngarw House?
What events do you put on throughout the year?
We host a wide variety of events and activities all-year round, from ranger-led activities like pond dipping and nature walks to professional events such as outdoor theatre performances.
