The Rhondda Valleys are surrounded by the most dramatic and natural resource rich landscapes in Wales. Today over 70% of the of the land in the Upper Rhondda Fawr is in public ownership and although there is a limited Public Rights of Way network (17km within the Treherbert Ward), there is extensive ‘open access’ for local people and visitors to enjoy (over 80% of the Treherbert Ward is open access land). The strength of community groups and associations based around the historic mining workforce has left the legacy of a large number of assets in the Valley in terms of parks, structures (e.g. pavilions, paddling pools, recreation equipment) and buildings (e.g. Welfare Halls, Girls and Boys Clubs, Libraries). These are also assets we can use to shape our future. The Welcome To Our Woods Project operates from several sites spread geographically around the Upper Rhondda Fawr area, each providing various functions.
