A NEW children’s play and nature park in Llandrindod Wells was officially opened to the public earlier this month.

The Tremont Park Play and Nature Park was opened on May 4. This new community space is a haven for nature, while also providing a safe and inviting playground and play area for youngsters to enjoy.

Visitors to Tremont Park Play and Nature Park will discover a mini orchard and edible herb plot planted in the new raised beds. Several wildflower plants, such as the pinky-red flowers of Red Campion and Ragged Robin have also been introduced to complement the existing wet meadow and willow scrub habitat.

A grassy mown path leads you through the nature park where you can find seating and a picnic table enclosed within an oak pergola – the perfect place to relax and enjoy local nature.

Councillor Marcia Morgan, mayor of Llandrindod, said: “We have been delighted to work in partnership with Powys County Council (PCC) on the acquisition and development of land opposite Tremont Park to form this combined play and nature park for the local community.

“The Radnorshire Wildlife Trust (RWT) and town council members have volunteered on the development of this area.

“New play equipment has been installed and natural elements introduced to maximise the potential of this play and nature park as part of the biodiversity project, conventional and natural play in a nature-friendly area for everyone.

“Sympathetic seating provides places for visitors to admire the beauty of the nature around.

“Now that it is open and complete, the Tremont Park Play and Nature Park will be owned and managed by Llandrindod Wells Town Council, and we hope everyone will enjoy this unique and special place.”

Designed, developed and made possible by the local authority’s Powys Nature Partnership, the new park aims to enhance biodiversity and improve connection and access to nature within our local environments.


The Nature Partnership is a collaboration between the town council, the RWT and PCC and others, which was made possible with funding through the Shared Prosperity Fund and Local Places for Nature Fund.

“This community project is a perfect example of how working together, we can help create and enhance places for nature into urban and previously nature-deprived areas,” said Cllr Jackie Charlton, PCC cabinet member for a Greener Powys.

“Spending time in nature benefits our mental and physical wellbeing, so as well as providing a more sustainable and ecologically friendly environment for nature to thrive, the local community around Tremont Park will benefit too by having a place to enjoy the benefit of spending time in nature.

“We look forward to working with other local communities to develop further nature-areas throughout the county in the future.”
