Summertime in Cefn Onn – parking arrangements

During the building refurbishment 80% of the car park is closed and visitors are parking down the entrance road into the Park and also on Cherry Orchard Road. When approaching, this make it appear that the Park is ‘heaving’ with visitors when it is not necessarily more so than usual. Please try to arrive on foot but if you do drive, please continue to park sensibly so as not to block the entrance, particularly to emergency vehicles. Cherry Orchard Road is a wide road (with one pavement) so there is no need to park astride the pavement and upset our local neighbours with  pushchairs, wheelchairs, etc.Pavement Parking: Finding a solution - PATROL

March, April and May 2020 Workdays cancelled

Following the government announcements with regards Covid-19, Cardiff Council has suspended all non-essential meetings and gatherings for the time being.  This is not a decision taken lightly but is intended to safeguard staff and volunteers as across the Council.

We obviously have no idea how long these measures will last and will let you know as soon as we can resume normal Workdays. In the meantime, take care of yourselves and your families and we will see you all soon.

Car park closure: 24 – 29 Feb 2020

As part of the HLF work, the car park in Parc Cefn Onn will be closed for up to 5 days from Monday 24th February. This is due to grounds works that are taking place and run across the car park towards the railway line. If the work is completed sooner than planned the car park will of course reopen earlier. The car park will be fully reopened from Saturday 29th.

At no point will the park be closed to pedestrians.

Whilst the work is being carried out the Friend’s bench shall be removed for safe keeping as will the noticeboard next to it. They shall be reinstalled at the end of the project.
