Parc Cefn Onn works set to begin
Works to deliver major improvements to Parc Cefn Onn begin next week. 

The works are part of a National Lottery funded £660,000 project that will deliver a number of improvements to the Grade 2 listed, historic country park in north Cardiff and its facilities for visitors including better access, improved signage, improvements to the ponds and waterways and upgraded toilet facilities.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a grant of £459,000 to the scheme and works to enable the first stage of improvements, expected to take around four months to complete, commence on Monday February 4.

During this time, the Dingle in the upper area of the park will be closed to the public. Access alongside the railway to the woodlands and footpath network beyond the park will remain open.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury, said: “Parc Cefn Onn is a real gem in the north of the city and it’s great to see this project to conserve and enhance this unique woodland park is getting underway.   

“The works due to start next week are just the start of the project that, as well as physical improvements to the park, will focus on delivering a range of activities to promote and encourage use of the park by a wide range of visitors of all ages and abilities.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to visitors to the park for the restricted access to certain areas but thank everyone for their patience as we work to enhance this local beauty spot and ensure it can be enjoyed to the full by visitors for years to come.”
