We are delighted to inform residents that Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is investing further in Abercynon Park.

The works include new paths between the play equipment in the children’s play area. Two new netball courts will be installed and flood lighting will be improved.

We welcome further investment in our fantastic park that provides opportunities for people of all ages to improve their fitness, health and well-being.

Lobbying for improvements to Taff Trail in Abercynon area

We have received a very positive response from Rhondda Cynon Taf Council officers about improving the surface of the Taff Trail path in Abercynon.

A number of cyclists and walkers have raised this the condition of the path with us. We are really pleased to see that the Council is willing to use Welsh Government Active Travel funding to improve much loved & used paths such as the staff Trail.

We look forward to further announcements from the Council about investment for the Taff Trail.

Online R.C.T meeting with South Wales Police & Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael, is holding a virtual community conversation with residents in Rhondda Cynon Taf on Tuesday 5th October at 5.30pm via Zoom.

Temporary closure to Park Road Path – Transport for Wales works

The Park Road Path will be closed temporarily from 20th – 24th September to allow Transport for Wales to carry out clearance works to the stream and banking.

Together with residents in River Row, we have urged Transport for Wales for some time to clean out the stream and banking. We are pleased to see that the works are being carried out.

This will hopefully reduce the flooding of the path during heavy rainfall and also improve the local environment as rubbish and litter will be removed.
