Aberdare Park is a well-preserved Victorian public park which has has many facilities making it a great place for a family trip. The wide open spaces make it an ideal place for children to play in, and when they have tired of that, how about taking them to feed the ducks and geese on the lake.

For the ultimate adrenalin rush, visit the park during July and watch the motorcycle races. In the past, such greats as Jeff Duke, John Surtees and Mike Hailwood showed their excellence and skill as they raced around the National Road Racing circuit consisting of the circular walk of the park.

For the keen horticulturalist, there is plenty to see with many fine mature specimen trees such as the Metasequioia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwoods) and Fagus heterophylla laciniata (Fern Leaf Beech). The spring and summer bedding displays provide splashes of vivid colour while in the spring, the rhododedrons and azaleas brighten the Falls area.
