Rosehill Quarry Community Park
An extraordinary community managed resource.
Rosehill Quarry Community Park is an urban green space that is managed by a local volunteer group to provide a community resource that supports recreation and promotes biodiversity. It has become a focus for local events, bringing people together to take responsibility for its maintenance and development.
The site has a fascinating history and many interesting features, including fresh water springs and a variety of trees, shrubs and wildflowers covering the banks and rocky outcrops created by the former quarrying activities. Some of the benches, handrails and steps re made from recycled plastic material.

School and community groups are welcome to visit and use the site unaccompanied but should contact the Rosehill Quarry Group in advance so the site can be checked for litter and damage beforehand. Volunteers can also accompany visits and provide information.
There are no toilets or indoor areas on the site and some areas are not accessible for wheelchairs. Access to the site is via a slope from Terrace Road or down steep steps from Pantycelyn Road, Townhill. Parking near either entrance is limited.
There are volunteer opportunities with this Trail project.
