Last Friday saw the official launch of the Parks and Gardens digital campaign. Along with a variety of figures from our featured attractions and South Wales tourism, the Mayor of Merthyr Tydfil, and some local school children, we were lucky enough to enjoy the excellent facilities at Cyfarthfa Park Visitor Centre. Some particularly delicious Welsh cakes were on offer and the speeches kept short in favour of special tours of the Cyfarthfa House and gardens. In the true spirit of South Wales Parks and Gardens, our launch was a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, education and having a good time.
New featured gardens are still more than welcome now that the site has been officially launched, and we also encourage anyone with a story to tell about a local green space, country park, manor house, or public park to tell it here!
