The Country Parks
The Boroughs seven country parks, together with the Clywedog Trail and a section of Offa’s Dyke are all managed by Wrexham Parks, Countryside and Public Rights of Way Service. It seeks to balance the needs of wildlife and recreation in the parks and also works with communities on local initiatives.
The seven country parks across the County Borough offer easy access to the countryside. Visitors can enjoy walks in beautiful woodlands, wander alongside the rivers Clywedog, Alyn and Dee or visit the spectacular Cefn Viaduct and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Alyn Waters Country Park between Gwersyllt and Llay has a series of easy walks and cycle tracks for safe biking. Ty Mawr at Cefn Mawr has superb views of the Vale of Llangollen and of the Viaduct. Nant Mill Visitor Centre nestles in woodland alongside the beautiful River Clywedog. Bonc yr Hafod, Hafod Community Park has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.
The Service also offers a comprehensive environmental education service to schools. All the activities are linked to the National Curriculum and specialised projects or activities can be tailored to fit the specific needs of the teacher. Topics are cross curricular and encourage intellectual and social development by using programmes which are fun and exciting.
Throughout the year including the school holidays there are many special activities held in each of the parks, from walks and talks to craft activities and story telling. Events Programmes are available from Wrexham Tourist Information Centre, or our any of our visitor centres. Our events are also available online in a searchable database.
