Alyn Waters Country Park
Enjoy peaceful walking and cycling in this lovely country park in the Alyn Valley, Wrexham. The Park is split into two sections either side of the River Alyn which runs through the centre of the park. As such there are delightful riverside walks to enjoy and other well surfaced paths taking you through woodland and grassland.
Alyn Waters also contains a visitor centre with a cafe and gift shop, a Local Nature Reserve and a Trim Trail with a selection of different simple exercise equipment. Look out for a variety of wildlife including kingfishers, buzzards, kestrels, foxes, adders, grass snakes, smooth newts and a variety of bats.
Alyn Waters is located 3 miles North of Wrexham between Gwersyllt, Bradley and Llay. The Wat's Dyke Way Heritage Trail runs through the park so you could follow this walking route if you would like to continue your walk. Also nearby is Waun-y-llyn Country Park where you can climb to the top of Hope Mountain for wonderful views of the region.
