Summer has finally arrived! With the warm weather and lighter evenings, why not pay a visit to one of Wrexham’s country parks and take in their natural beauty.
Between the 14th and 23rd of July is ‘Love Parks Week’ – Britain’s biggest annual celebration of parks.
Over the next seven days Wrexham Council are inviting people across the county borough to make the effort to visit one of these treasures during Love Parks week.
Wrexham has 11 country parks spread all over the county borough and each offers something different.
From the animals and spectacular Cefn Viaduct at Ty Mawr to the cycle tracks and sculpture trail at Alyn Waters, there is plenty to see and do in Wrexham’s country parks. There is even one within two minutes’ walk of the town centre at Bellevue, so you can take a lunchtime stroll if you work in town.
Six of Wrexham’s parks fly the coveted Green Flags. And thanks to their ‘friends and volunteers’ groups, all are kept in tip-top condition and offer events and activities for all ages.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead member for Environment and Transport, said: “In Wrexham we have some of the most spectacular and breathtaking scenery in Wales, and indeed the UK. Please don’t stay at home, please make the effort to get to know your local park or explore one you haven’t visited before.”
Wrexham’s Country Parks are: Ty Mawr Country Park, Nant Mill Visitor Centre and Park, Ponciau Banks, Moss Valley Country Park, Alyn Waters Country Park, Acton Park, Bellevue Park, Bonc yr Hafod Country Park, Stryt Las Park, Bryn Kinalt Park and Minera Lead Mines Country Park.
