It was terrible that the residents of the Rhondda had to travel all the way to Pontypridd for the children to have any free fun in the water, not everybody can afford to travel to Pontypridd. Unfortunately the council refused point blank to open any Paddling Pool in RCT, including the one in Penygraig.
Leanne started the campaign to open Penygraig paddling pool over a year ago, and Today 14th August 2017 the pool opened it's gates to the public for the first time in four years.
Over the past year, having held several public meetings, a team came together under the chairmanship of local resident and Plaid Cymru councillor, Josh Davies to make the dream of re-opening the paddling pool in Penygraig a reality this Summer. They have been working non stop to turn the dream into reality, and the pool is now open for two full weeks, from 10:30 until 5 each day.
