End of the Season

Hi Friends,

Well it’s the end of the season, and what a great season it was! It was brilliant to see so many new faces this year on the Park and I hope you all had a fabulous time.

We ended the season with our usual Halloween Spooktacular. Take a look at some of the pictures below;

Extraordinary events this Summer!

Hi Friends!

There’s still plenty of time to enjoy some great events this summer….

See Ricardo the Pirate, Howard the Magician or Smarty Marty the Clown at the Forest Theatre performing their ever popular and unforgettable shows and challenges, be transformed by Lookachu Body Art and Hair Braiding or have your face painted by Lisa and Moira. Fancy taking something special home with you?  Make a Gypsy flower, do some log sawing with name engraving or even experience Pyro Art with Nader! Also don’t miss our ever popular Donkey Rides, take a ride on one of GreenWood’s newest friends!

Elsewhere onsite, jump aboard the worlds’ only people powered roller coaster, zoom down Wales’ longest sledge run or embark on a Jungle Boat Adventure. For those rainy days, head inside the Enchanted WoodBarn for a mystical world of indoor play! Set in 17 magical acres, you’ll discover bags of woodland adventure and forest family fun.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Love,

Climate Week Event

Hi Friends,

I hope you all enjoyed your half term; it was great to see so many people at the Park. It’s not long now till the main season when the Park reopens on 16th March for a whole season full of Forest Fun!

Here at GreenWood we are doing our bit for this year’s Climate Week, which runs from 4th– 10th March.

We will be holding a swapping event, where visitors bring in any old toys / books or children’s clothes that they no longer want or need to swap with others. The event will be held in the Enchanted WoodBarn (our indoor soft play area) on Wednesday 6th March from 10am-2:30pm. Why not pop along and see if you can bring new life to old toys. Parents can browse the items whilst the children play. (Normal winter admission applies)

Swapping Event

As well as this event we are also giving away Yew Tree’s to any local churches who wish to plant them in their Church Yards- for more information about this click here.

I hope you can join us.

See you soon,

 Love, Harley

New winter opening and Santa’s Grotto!

Hi Friends,

I hope that you had a great October half term. It’s very quiet at the Park now we are closed, although there’s plenty to be done to get us ready for seeing you all again in December!

For the first time ever we are going to be opening our new indoor play area- The Enchanted WoodBarn and GreenOak Café this winter, from 8th December. The rest of the Park will stay closed until February half term next year; the maintenance team are busy making sure it will be ready for the 2013 season.

Some even more exciting news is it that Siôn Corn / Santa Claus will be here every weekend in December, starting from the 8th. You can see Santa, receive a present and play in the Enchanted WoodBarn for just £6.50!

If you would like to book to see him just call our friendly office team on 01248 671493 or you can email them at info@greenwoodforestpark.co.uk.

Testimonials

Hi Friends!

We’ve had some great feedback lately from our visitors so i thought i would share some of it with you;

  • The best thing about GreenWood is being able to let your children run free around the park knowing that they are in a safe environment to explore, have fun, use
    their imaginations, create things but most of all do what kids to best be kids
  • For me it is because it is not all fancy rides and gimmiks, it is good simple fun outdoors and that is why i love it.
  • The best thing about GreenWood is the look on the children’s faces when they arrive at the entrance,and which is still there when they leave! sheer pleasure,excitement,joy! amazing and it’s in wonderful Wales!
  • The best thing about GreenWood is that the whole family always have a fab day no matter what time of year you visit or what the weathers like.
  • A great day out for all the family. Excellent facilities and entertainment for all ages.
  • Great value for money! A full day of family fun! Even very little children can get a great experience from visiting this park. There are loads of rides and activities to do and all set in beautiful grounds with lovely views of the Snowdonian range.This is an outdoor attraction so I would only go when the weather is decent unless you want to be dragging wet, miserable kids around! This attraction gets the kids moving with action packed play areas, zip lines, barefoot walks, slides, eco dragon ride and much more! We took a packed lunch with us; there were plenty of places to sit and eat it. Toilet facilities were spotless.We will be returning!
  • Visited here yesterday with my 2 year old ( 3 next wk) and my 10 month old, excellent day out with lots to do for 2 yr old. Will be visiting again when boys are older.

 Bye for now,

Harley x
