Maindee Triangle opposite the library on Chepstow Road is a rare green space and community facility in the heart of the Maindee community. Following an asset transfer from Newport City Council in March 2021, Maindee Unlimited now have a lease for 99 years thereby securing the land and buildings for Maindee into the future. We have worked with KHBT Architects to develop the designs and renovations that are taking place this Spring/Summer.

During 2023 the building was rented out as a commercial cafe. The cafe lease has now ended and, in 2024, we are moving ahead with our plans to provide public toilet facilities as well as a small community cafe and meeting space with an outdoor covered area. The outdoor garden is planted with wildlife and pollinator-friendly plants and vegetables and is a play-friendly space with a climbing wall for small children.  Th sire hasbeen transformed into a clean and safe community garden - a hub for people and nature which is used and enjoyed by all in our community.

We’d love to hear from you  if you’d like to be involved  in activities such as:

    • Hiring the community room
    • Using the Triangle for indoor/outdoor events
    • Running markets and trading
    • Helping out with children’s play events
    • Helping out with gardening and looking after the green space
