Project Number: 390641.012
Objective: To provide a permanently sited kiosk for the park
Project Completion Date: September 2013

LCF Funding: £15000
Project Partners: The Friends of Waunfawr Park; Caerphilly CBC
Waunfawr Park provides an open space of 9 hectares for leisure and recreation; the amenity is very popular and is used by a large number of user groups including ramblers, cyclists, gardeners and general park users. It also serves as the home ground for local cricket, soccer and rugby teams.
Despite the large number of users, the Park did not have a readily accessible toilet facility and this project provided a permanently sited kiosk including disabled, male/female toilets and a small refreshment booth, to be staffed by a social enterprise group.
This project will protect the social environment whilst making for a more enjoyable visitor experience.
