Aberdare Park

Introduction

Aberdare Park is a well-preserved Victorian public park, partly laid out by the eminent park and garden designer William Barron. As well as retaining most of its Victorian-built features, such as a bandstand and fountain, it has an attractive lake. Many of the original trees are now mature specimens.
