Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Update

Caerphilly CBC has taken the decision and has adopted a consistent approach to ensure social distancing and restricting the potential of any form of gathering within our open spaces, along with other local authorities across Wales, in the interest of public health, and as a consequence the Council has closed children’s play areas, multi-use games areas (MUGAs), skate parks, municipal and country parks for which it is responsible from the 23 March until further notice.

This tough decision follows guidance from UK and Welsh Government to ensure social distancing in order to limit the spread of COVOID-19 Coronavirus and to protect our residents, especially those who are vulnerable. Residents are being urged to co-operate with these closures and not attempt to enter these spaces.

Spaces available

Ever wanted to be a Countryside Ranger and join in all the cool things that rangers do every day?


Well guess what!? Now you can, and all you need to do to be a part of all the fun is join the Junior Rangers.

Caerphilly Junior Rangers is a free, fun-packed wildlife club for children aged 8 to 11 years old (below year 7). As a Junior Ranger you could be exploring the countryside, finding out about wildlife or learning how to build fires safely. You'll enjoy lots of fun-packed activities, play games, be creative with arts and crafts and learn a variety of ranger skills with hand tools.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Junior Ranger, and it sounds like your idea of fun then we'd like to hear from you. We meet once a month on a Sunday afternoon at Parc Penallta.

So come on… download an application form... join the fun, become a Junior Ranger!
