Planners are looking at a wide range of activities to breath new life in to the parks throughout the Vale of Glamorgan.
There are plans for a zip wire, mountain bike track and high rope course for sites in the Vale, subject to assessments and planning conditions.
The proposals include Leckwith Woods, one of the medieval woodlands on the edge of Cardiff, and there are also proposals to bring new attractions to Cwm Cydfin Woods, Porthkerry Park and Cosmeston.
Some schemes will see camping pod sites created for visitors to get close to nature.
The council owns more than 200 acres of woodland, in areas known as Leckwith Woods and Cwm Cydfin Woods.
Bob Guy, Vale of Glamorgan Council Operational Manager for Regeneration, said, “We believe these proposals represent exciting opportunities that will add to the appeal of the locations in question, enhancing the visitor experience by offering fresh ways in which they can be enjoyed. They will also boost tourism, which will have positive consequences for the local economy as tourism generates income and local jobs.”
