Salisbury Park Conservation Area is located to the south of the historic core of Wrexham Town Centre, elevated above the River Gwenfro and St Giles Way. The area overlooks the town centre and has excellent views of St Giles Church tower, one of the seven Wonders of Wales.

The conservation area has a strong linear form connecting Kingsmills Road in the east and Pen y Bryn in the North West. Salisbury Road, Poplar Road and Chapel Street form the spine of the conservation area with minor roads and streets offering linkages to the later and humbler terraced streets of Talbot Road, Fairfield Road and Bryn Draw Terrace.

The Salisbury Park Conservation Area was first designated in November 1996 and its boundary amended and extended to include part of Earle Street in 2013. The Salisbury Park Conservation Area Character Assessment and Management Plan was adopted in April 2013. The Salisbury Park article 4(2) direction came into effect in February 1997.
