MID and West Wales AM Joyce Watson learned about ambitious plans for a ‘Great Welsh Water Park’ on a recent visit to Llys y Fran.
A decision is soon expected on Welsh Water’s £4million proposal to transform the country park and reservoir into a first class leisure destination.
Plans, presented last September to Pembrokeshire County Council, include an interactive water play zone, a water sports activity centre and improved fishing and walking facilities.
Dwr Cymru invited Mrs Watson, who sits on the Assembly committees for business and the environment, to take a guided tour of the site.
She said: “My family and I visit here quite often, for walks and birdwatching, so I was very curious to learn more about these plans, preliminary as they are, of course.”
The Llys y Fran estate comprises a 212 acres man-made lake surrounded by a grassland and woodland park.
Dwr Cymru is working with Visit Wales, the tourism arm of Welsh Government, on the project.
