Details of a £1.7 million pound project to transform Greenmeadow Community Farm have been unveiled.
Visitors to the farm in Cwmbran this week were among the first to see the detailed plans, which were on display as part of special Halloween celebrations over the weekend.
They include a new outdoor play area, zip wire, indoor soft play area and licensed bar.
Work is due to begin on the 120-acre site next week and the farm will be closed from Monday 7 November. It's hoped the new-look farm will reopen in the spring.
Councillor FIona Cross, Executive Member for Children, Families and Communities, said: "We know there are lots of residents who enjoy visiting the farm and will miss it while it is closed. Just this week alone, more than 2,000 people visited the farm to take part in Halloween and half-term events.
"But these plans help to bring this bold and exciting project to life and we look forward to welcoming everyone back when it reopens next year."
You can follow the progress of the development and keep in touch with the team and animals by following Greenmeadow Community Farm and Torfaen Council on Facebook.
As well as a host of Halloween and half-term activities, the farm will also hold a Christmas Local Food and Craft Market on this Sunday, 6 November, with special guests Elsa and Anna.
