News in brief: gardens, climbing, trains

Cogan Gardens, a small green space at the heart of a Cardiff community, has officially re-opened to the public following some big improvements.

Children from Cardiff Muslim Primary School joined councillors to celebrate the completion of works in Cathays, which are part of an ongoing £3.2 million programme of investment in parks and play areas across Cardiff.

◼️ Parc Penallta, in Ystrad Mynach, will soon boast three new climbing features.

Caerphilly County Borough Council secured funding through the Welsh Government Rural Development – Rural Communities 2014:2020 Programme to develop a series of climbing stones to compliment the park’s natural climbing features.

The new climbing structures at Parc Penallta will offer opportunities for different levels of ability from beginner to more advanced. They will be free to use and will be named ‘Nursery’, ‘Revelation’ and ‘Remarkable’. They should be completed in the coming weeks.

◼️ In the biggest shake-up of railway timetables for many years, GWR is introducing 65 new trains every week in south Wales from today (Monday).

The new timetable will deliver almost a 5% increase in train services every day across the GWR network.

As part of the changes, GWR is introducing 65 additional direct services between Carmarthen and London Paddington, extending previous trains beyond Swansea.

The changes are now available through GWR’s Journey Check service here.
