SALES, RENTALS AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT PONTYPRIDD
Set at the junction of the Rhondda and Taff/Cynon valleys, Pontypridd is a historic town with a population of around 35,000. Its long links to the iron and coal trades are still evident throughout its fabric and architecture. It was the town from where the Welsh national anthem, “Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau” originated and it is also host to one of the most famous rugby clubs in Wales. The club based at Sardis Road, locally known as “The House of Pain”, has nurtured numerous Welsh legends across the years including Neil Jenkins, Matthew Rees and Gethin Jenkins. Tom Jones was also born locally and grew up in the town before embarking on his legendary singing career.
The town centre is based around the sprawling Ynysangharad Park which has been designated by CADW as a Grade II listed landscape of historical importance. The park plays host to everything from inflatable water obstacle courses to industrial-themed adventure play and is the beating heart of the community.
