Parc Melin Mynach, also known as Monks’ Mill, is a landscape of historic interest which over time has developed mature tree cover. The park is a time capsule that has survived the encroachment and reclamation of the heavy industry that has gone on around it. This rough terrain is more suitable for those who prefer a brisk walk. The open landscape is perfect for letting the dog off the lead and strolling through the winding pathways.

The land was granted to the Cistercian monks of Neath abbey in the 12th Century on which they constructed the first recorded watermill for the site. The building remains that can be seen in the woodlands today are remnants of a much later industrial complex. They illustrate how much industrial technology changed in the area from the harnessing of water for power to the exploitation of coal and the development of steam power, which occurred just to the north of the park area at the Mountain Air colliery (the land has now been reclaimed). There are information panels on the site explaining the history of the site.
Main entrance to the site is from the corner of Cecil Road.
On entering the site at Cecil Road you are greeted with a large mounted 18th-century cast iron waterwheel which was retrieved from the site.
