Parc Penallta

Parc Penallta

Penallta, Ystrad Mynach, CF8, Wales

Ideal location to observe the night sky with a playing field size area affording excellent views to all horizons. Featured as a dark sky discovery site although how ideal a site is questionable due to the proximity of nearby light polluted towns (we haven’t been there — let us know!).


Parc Penallta is a Dark Sky Discovery Site, an officially recognised place where anyone can stargaze. Most such locations have overnight parking (sometimes with a fee); however, many do not allow overnight camping. There may or may not be toilet facilities.
