Coronavirus Updates - Leisure, Parks & Events

Last updated Thursday 26 March 2020 at 13:10


Whilst the Council’s allotments remain accessible, before entering the site we would ask you to consider if your visit is really necessary. If the answer is yes, then please observe Government advice around keeping your distance from others (two metres) where practical and treating any publicly accessible surfaces as potential sources of infection. Further information is available on the Allotments area of the website.

Blaenavon World Heritage Centre

Blaenavon World Heritage Centre is closed until further notice.

Community Walks - Torfaen Take a Stroll

The weekly Torfaen community walks have been cancelled until further notice.


The majority of events in Torfaen have been cancelled.  Please contact the organiser if you were planning on attending an event.

Greenmeadow Community Farm

Greenmeadow Community Farm is closed until further notice. We will of course ensure that the animals are safe and well throughout the closure.

Llanyrafon Manor

Llanyrafon Manor is closed to the public.

Play grounds

Torfaen council have decided to close all council play facilities in play grounds to residents from today.

The aim is to reduce public gatherings and unnecessary travel in order to stop the rapid spread of coronavirus overloading the NHS.

Bron Afon Community Housing have also shut all eleven of their children’s play parks. 

Public Rights of Way

Our Public Rights of Way network remains open, but this may change if areas are identified where groups of people are congregating and actively ignoring measures set out by the Government.

We’re asking everyone to stick to social distancing and use their local routes, rather then travel to the countryside unnecessarily.

All path closure notices will be published online and notices posted on site under The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Closure of Leisure Businesses, Footpaths and Access Land) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

Sports Development

All sessions led by Torfaen Sports Development have been postponed until further notice. This includes campaigns #IFYOUGOIGO and the recently announced Torfaen ‘Better Man’.
