Talbot Memorial Park, also known locally as Taibach Park, is a small, well-preserved urban park close to the centre of Port Talbot. The park is listed as Grade ll on the Glamorgan Register of Historic Parks and Gardens in Wales and includes a fine central bandstand.

The park’s war memorial takes the form of a bronze sculpture of victorious peace on a granite pedestal and was unveiled on 4th July 1925 by Field Marshal Sir William R Robertson. The memorial remembers those from the area who gave their lives in both World Wars and the commemorative character of the park is emphasised by the main gate which is dedicated to Rupert Price Hallowes, who received the Victoria Cross for his actions at Hooges in 1915.
