Open Spaces

Published: 14 April 2021

The events of the last year have highlighted the importance of our local spaces to the community.

Gorseinon Town Council (GTC) is pleased to contribute £25,000 towards a new play facility at Park Melyn Mynach (MM). This forms part of the £100,000 investment in the new play facility alongside contributions from Swansea City Council and Councillors Andrew Stevens, Jan Curtis and Kelly Roberts. The new play facility will be a brilliant addition to the park and builds on the success of the stake park and bike track, which are incredibly popular.

MM is currently receiving investment in the form of a new path from Swansea City Council. The path will start from the Pontardulais Road entrance (opposite Penyrheol Comprehensive) and link with the existing path between Heol y Mynydd and Ffordd Eira. There is also a new crossing linking the MM path to the Gorseinon to Grovesend cycle track.

A group of local volunteers have also created a ‘Friends of Park Melyn Mynach’ group that aims to improve the facilities in the park as well as protecting the parks environment and heritage. To help the group achieve their ambitious plans, GTC have donated £300.

To further enhance our green spaces, GTC will start a planting/ landscaping scheme on the grass area next to ‘The Bug’. This space will be brilliant addition, welcoming people to our town as well as a link from the Gorseinon to Grovesend cycle path and the Gorseinon to Garden Village path, leading on to the new path to Gowerton. There will also be complimentary planting on the lower end of Heol y Mynydd (opposite the Toby Carvery).
