PROJECT OVERVIEW


The idea of the Cynon Valley River Park was drawn from the Cynon Valley Local Plan, adopted by Rhondda Cynon Taf in 2004


The Cynon Valley River Park Project had a key focus on the strategic importance of the flood plain environment and on projects to encourage positive use and management of the floodplain to provide space for natural processes, for wildlife and for people. The aim is to bring together all the relevant green-space projects in the area, large and small, strategic and local, into a coherent and up to date framework.

to date framework

The project enacted a series of works along a 14.5 km (9 miles) river corridor that extends from Abercynon to Hirwaun to enhance the trail and access and improve the experience of the user as part of the National Cycle Network NCN 478 linking the Taff Trail to the south and the Brecon Beacons and Heads of Valleys cycle route (NCN 46) to the north.
