Pen-y-fan Pond is one of the last remaining canal feeder reservoirs in Wales. This popular summertime family destination offers safe, flat, open spaces to picnic, fly a kite, kick a ball or take an easy ramble. Follow the ‘Alien Invasion Trail’ around the park and discover who’s been visiting...
Experienced walkers can use the park as a base to explore the beautiful and historic countryside around Manmoel. Fishing is permitted on the pond but please make sure you get your day ticket from Pontllanfraith Leisure Centre beforehand.
