Waun-gron Park railway station serves the Fairwater area of Cardiff, Wales. The station was built when the City Line 2.4 miles (4 km) west of Cardiff Central reopened to passenger services in 1987. Passenger services are currently operated by Arriva Trains Wales.

Waun-gron Park is the nearest station to the large suburb of Ely which is 10 minutes' walk from the station along Western Avenue and over Ely Bridge.

Services[edit]

The Monday to Friday off-peak service is two trains per hour each way. Eastbound to Cardiff Central, Cardiff Queen Street, and then Coryton, and westbound to Radyr.

Journey times from Waun-gron Park are eight minutes to Cardiff Central, 11 minutes to Radyr and 28 minutes to Coryton.

There is no Sunday service, although some trains running to destinations such as Merthyr Tydfil, Aberdare and Treherbert from Cardiff Central sometimes pass Waun-gron Park on the City Line when the usual line for these services through Cardiff Queen Street is closed for engineering work.
