Residents of Neath Port Talbot can now get year round access to Margam Country Park at reduced rates. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The parks’ season ticket scheme will once again be in place for 2017/18 allowing regular visitors to save on the normal car parking charge of £5.40. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Season tickets can be purchased at £28, however residents of Neath Port Talbot will benefit from a discount of £5, making the ticket a snip at just £23 a year. This means that residents who visit more than 4 times a year will be getting a great saving. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The aim is to encourage Neath Port Talbot residents to visit the park more often,” says Park Manager Michael Wynne. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We are conscious that the economic climate can make it difficult for people to have family days out and want to make it affordable for as many people as possible to enjoy the park.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The park offers diverse activities for those of all ages, from gentle walks to strenuous hill climbs, from the farm trail to the children’s fairytale village, or for viewing the fantastic wildlife and historic castle. The more adventurous can ‘Go Ape’ at the parks’ tree top adventure experience then refuel at Charlotte’s Pantry and gift shop located in the castle courtyard. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
