Bridgend / River Ogmore

Paddlesport Development Opportunities

This report examined the feasibility of developing paddlesports on the River Ogmore at Bridgend; specifically on the river adjacent to the Recreation Centre. A "Canoe Park" was proposed to utilise the available head and flow in the natural river, forming a series of small and interesting rapids, interspersed with deeper pools.
