Gnoll Country Park is a delightful country park based on an 18th Century landscaped garden. Close to Neath town centre, it features lakes, cascades, a grotto, children's play area, adventure playground and a Visitor Interpretation Centre. The park's forest footpaths link to the Mosshouse Reservoir and Cefn Morfudd historical viewpoints. From the A465 at Neath follow B4434 signs for Tonna and then the brown signs off Gnoll Park Road. The main park can be enjoyed by all, but the footpaths to the Mosshouse are a little more strenuous.
