The new park has proven very popular unfortunately lots of visitors and parents have been arriving by car and have been parking along Heol y Park blocking residents drives and causing problems on the the junction. Cars are blocking the view causing road safety issues and almost daily the whole of Heol y Park has seen cars parked on both sides of the road, which includes cars parking on the pavement. The local PCSO has been patrolling the area and the local community council have put up signs on the main gate asking car users to park in the rugby car park.
