DISCOVERY
Eco-exploration abounds at GreenWood, offering a family experience unlike any other. Follow the Tree Name Trail to learn all about the different tree species at GreenWood, or meet our animals – peacocks, rabbits, guinea pigs and budgies. Head indoors to the Medieval style Great Hall and you’ll find a fascinating exhibition full of interactive features – make music from wood, experience a dusty desert, and enter an African Nomad Hut. The Great Hall itself is a natural wonder, built from 40 tons of green oak, and the first building of its kind to be built in North Wales for at least 400 years.

SEASONAL FUN
No two visits to GreenWood are alike thanks to special seasonal events, be it an Easter Eggstravaganza or a Hallowe’en Spooktacular. Join in on arts and crafts to create a unique memento of your day out, or try your hand at something unusual – how about Maypole dancing or circus skills?

During the summer months, take a seat in the open-air Forest Theatre and prepare to be dazzled by our lively entertainers. Marvel at magic, pirate and comedy shows that are suitable for the whole family. For complete up-to-date listings, visit the Events page here.

RELAX
Even the most eager forest explorers need a break from time to time! Poets’ Corner – new for 2010 – is a little haven away from the bustle of the Park, where you can encounter the very best of Welsh poetry in total tranquillity. If you’re looking to refuel, our catering facilities provide ample choice – pick up a quick bite at one of our Snack Bars, or visit the Conservatory Café for the full menu. There are several picnic areas dotted around the Park so if you wish, you can eat al fresco.

In the Great Hall you’ll find two Gift Shops offering a range of merchandise including locally-produced confectionary, traditional Welsh lovespoons and a wide range of souvenirs.
