Facilities at Cwmdonkin Park

Have a look around!


1 Dylan’s coffee shop.

The go-to destination in Cwmdonkin Park. The former bowling pavilion is now an up to date coffee outlet – where Papi and his team provide a range of coffees, teas and other beverages, home-made cakes, ice creams etc virtually every day of the year. Indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the former Bowling green. A much loved destination for all – including families, dog walkers, and small groups. https://www.facebook.com/dylansatcwmdonkin
