Enchanted WoodBarn Launch

Hello Friends,
I hope you have all enjoyed the half term break; we’ve had a great time here at GreenWood seeing all the visitors. We even had a local celebrity join us!
This year’s new attraction was launched on Bank holiday Monday 4th June by local celebrity and comedian Tudur Owen. Our new attraction, The Enchanted WoodBarn, is a soft play area full of the latest indoor play. Tudur Owen who is a regular visitor to the park was invited to officially open the attraction, here’s what he had to say   “I’m really pleased to be able to help Gelli Gyffwrdd / GreenWood Forest Park.  I’ve been coming here for many years and appreciate how much stressed out parents appreciate a sit down with a coffee whilst their children play.  The Enchanted WoodBarn is an exciting new attraction, although 5 years too late for me as my children are all grown up!”


The launch was witnessed by staff and visitors to the park, and even my wife Heulwen was there! After the ribbon was cut children flooded in to have a go at this brand new play adventure.
GreenWood’s HR and Marketing Director Andrea Bristow had this to say about the launch “I think it was really nice of Tudur Owen to open the Enchanted Wood Barn. Diolch yn fawr. The building itself is magnificent and beautiful and the play adds a lot of happy voices and exploring children to this magical space”

Bye for now,

Love, Harley

Hello friends!

Hello friends!

It’s all so exciting!   I  now have my own very special blog to keep you up to date with all the news, gossip and special events at GreenWood Forest Park.

For example, this Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday, those on a special Easter day out enjoyed some extra special things to do. We had a Walt Disney Artist visit us, ran Children’s Easter Zumba, as well as Heulwen and I hosted a special Easter Egg Hunt too. And on Easter Monday, the Llansadwrn choir sang in the Great Hall. Magical!

If you’ve not visited us yet this Easter, the Easter fun continues daily until 15 April; get creative with Easter crafts, earn a treat in the Yellow Chick Trail and be entertained by Howard the Magician or Ricardo the Pirate (both in the Forest Theatre). You can also catch a Giant Bubble with Dr Zig’s until 11th April.

Even more exciting news is that Heulwen and I have started a family and our new arrival has come just in time for Easter. Our baby bunny still doesn’t have a name, so why not send in your suggestions to info@GreenWoodforestpark.co.uk. Keeps your eyes peeled for her over Easter weekend!
