Cwmbran Parks & Open Spaces

We are proud to have played our part in contributing to the quality of life in this area. We are pleased to promote the many rural attractions in and around Cwmbran

To help sustain such facilities, we are represented on the Blaenau Gwent and Torfaen Local Nature Partnership, which aims to bring communities together to explore, discover and share nature on their doorstep, providing advice and support for action to benefit local wildlife.

We have also kept a close eye on opportunities to encourage Active Travel, helping to promote and encourage people to enjoy our open spaces and create a more healthy Cwmbran. Active travel refers to cycling or walking for everyday journeys including getting to and from school, work, shops, health and leisure services, rather than for recreational services.

We have assisted with regeneration projects at areas of parkland and woodland and worked with the Woodland Trust to encourage both new tree planting and promote existing trees through the Woodland Trust Tree of the Year competition.

As a Charter Branch of the Woodland Trust’s Charter for Trees, Woods and People we are proud to act as a voice for trees and woods locally.

Why not get out and about and enjoy our local countryside?

Try a circular walk which visits the Blaen Bran Reservoirs near Cwmbran.

The site includes pleasant nature trails taking you around the two small reservoirs and into the surrounding woodland. You can find the reservoirs just to the north west of Cwmbran and just south of Pontypool. There is a car parking area at the site, just southeast of the reservoirs at a postcode of NP44 5AT for your sat navs. From here you can pick up the trails heading north west to the lakes and a waterfall. Then climb above the water to the north for some great views.

You can extend the walk by climbing onto the moorland around Mynydd Twyn-glas. Let us know how you get on!
