Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park covers the better part of North Wales, extending inland from the coast between Caernarfon and Penmaenmawr. When the Snowdon Mountain Railway was built, it opened up this beautiful natural landscape including access to the Snowdon Mountain (1,085m). It is one of the best places to visit if you’re a climber or hiker because you not only have an opportunity to access the best hiking trails but also experience white beaches and dunes, including picturesque views of valleys and canyons. Additionally, the park has a robust cultural heritage including pre-historical sites, small fishing villages, traditional farms, and old stone walls.

Ty Mawr Country Park

If you want to entertain the kids when they are on summer holidays or a warm Sunday afternoon without having to break the bank, then the Ty Mawr Country Park is a children’s favourite. Situated just outside, Wrexham, visitors only require a few minutes of driving to get there.

With adequate parking space, families can find a place to park especially on busy days. The park has both short and long walkways that take guests through scenic settings. There is also a small farm in the park that attracts kids who spend time with animals like llamas, pigs, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The park has virtually everything you need for the day. It has picnic areas with the necessary amenities like retail shops, toilets, information centres among others.

Wepre Park

Located in Deeside, the Wepre Park is a great place to explore. It has short pushchair-friendly walks, which is a great thing when you have kids around.

There is a vast, free parking lot to ensure guests don’t miss a spot. Adjacent to it is a restaurant that provides dining opportunities at affordable costs. The park has picnic spots and a playing area for the kids to indulge in physical activities. The place is well-served with enough toilets and other essential amenities. Children have alternatives paths to the Ewloe Castle. However, because of the many steps, a pushchair may not be an ideal means of accessing it.

The Bodnant Garden

Gardeners have an opportunity to visit and check out one of Wales’ oldest and most frequented botanical gardens in the country. Overlooking the Conwy Valley, Bodnant Garden provides a potent display of blossoming flowers and displays a magnificent coloured “carpet” from the Carneddau summit within the surrounding. Established in the 19th century, the garden covers almost 80-acres and still retains some of its ancient facets and floral collections that were initially planted here.
