Something for everyone at Carmarthenshire's top parks
There is something going on almost every other week of the year throughout 2014 at Wales’s most popular outdoor weather attractions, Pembrey Country and Llanelli’s Millennium Coastal parks.
Both parks attract more than a million visitors a year.
County executive board member for leisure services Cllr Meryl Gravell said Pembrey had demonstrated in recent years with Beach Break it can deal with more than 20,000 visitors for one event and is starting to attract attention from promoters of all kinds of activities.
Park ranger Stephen Oliver said: “Pembrey particularly was a park for all seasons and all reasons. When the weather is wet and windy the forest and trees offer a haven of calm and the wreck strewn Cefn Sidan was a delight to explore. This was why the park was becoming a great camping and caravan destination with bookings recorded from people from all over the country.”
The park also has Wales’ best artificial ski slope at Ski Pembrey and longest toboggan that averages 75,000 riders a year and last year clocked its 1.7millionth rider.
