Lying between Rhos and Johnstown, Stryt Las Park is an area of grassland, woodland and ponds. Surfaced pathways around the park allow you to explore the area, where you can look out for the giant newt sculpture and watch the water fowl.

Frogs, toads, smooth newts and palmate newts are all found in the park, but the Great Crested Newt population has given the site special status. Great Crested Newts are rare across their home of Northern Europe, but the low lying areas around Wrexham are a stronghold for these amphibians. 

Stryt Las Park has Site of Special Scientific Interest status and is part of the Johnstown Special Area of Conservation (along with Bonc yr Hafod Country Park) due to its Great Crested Newts.

The flying of drones is not permitted in Wrexham parks.
