Lying to the North-West of Gwersyllt, in the beautiful Alyn Valley, the Country Park is on the site of a gravel quarry, formally the Gwersyllt Hall Estate. At over 400 acres, it is Wrexham’s largest country park, with many miles of easily accessible paths through woodland, grassland and alongside the river. The Visitor Centre has a café, shop and a large conference/education room which is available to hire. Throughout the year the Park runs an exciting programme of events and activities, for children and adults.

The Park is a great place to enjoy healthy activities.
