Council consulting public on Cyfarthfa visitor experience
Thursday 31st of August 2017
Users of Merthyr Tydfil’s most popular tourist attraction are being asked to help make it an even better visitor experience.
Cyfarthfa Park has recently received more than £3 million of investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), Welsh Government, CADW and Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council.
The Council and Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Trust are looking to further improve the park and develop its industrial heritage and historic features as part of a second HLF Parks for People initiative.
Residents and visitors are being asked to take part in a consultation exercise asking them about their experiences and how they think they could be improved.
“The Parks for People funding is making a huge difference, allowing us to carry out repairs to the bandstand and glasshouses, and enhancing key heritage features,” said Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Public Protection Cllr Geraint Thomas.
“We will also have better interpretation, improved access, parking and visitor facilities. Ongoing works also includes improvements to the walled kitchen garden, tennis courts, bandstand, lake and park landscape, Castle Wood Ponds and the Icehouse,” he added.
“But we still want some input from our visitors and are hoping that the confidential survey will help us understand better their use of the park and its local attractions.”
The paper version of the questionnaire is available at the museum front desk, but it can also be completed online at http://www.cwmtafhub.co.uk
