Living in North Cardiff, it’s really not far to Pontypridd so I can’t believe we haven’t visited Ynysangharad Park sooner! We had to make an unexpected trip to Ponty on Wednesday so I decided to take the opportunity to have a look around.
This is such a fantastic park for Toddlers, much better than anything we have in Cardiff! There is a sand play area, Astroturf hills with tunnels underneath, a train and multiple toddler friendly climbing frames and slides. There is also equipment for older children.
The park itself is also a lovely green space to explore. You can grab a coffee or ice cream from the hut next to the park or visit ‘Caffi Lido’ for breakfast, brunch, lunch, poolside snacks and barista coffee including iced frappes and home-made cakes.
Pontypridd Lido is also located in Ynysangharad Park. You must pre-book tickets up to 7 days in advance and popular times will go quickly. There are 3 pools at the Lido including a splash pool for toddlers. Children under 16 go free and adults pay only £2. If you have older children who would like to use the activity pool it’s an extra £2.50 per person. Here is a link to book tickets.
