They’re spread all over the county borough and each offers something different.

From the animals and spectacular Cefn Viaduct at Ty Mawr to the cycle tracks and sculpture trail at Alyn Waters, we’re sure you’ll find something to amaze you…and get you out into the fresh air.

We’ve even got one within two minutes’ walk of the town centre at Bellevue, so you can take a lunchtime stroll if you work in town.

Six of our parks fly the coveted Green Flags. And thanks to their ‘friends and volunteers’ groups, all are kept in tip-top condition and offer events and activities for all ages.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead member for Environment and Transport, said:

“In Wrexham we have some of the most spectacular and breathtaking scenery in Wales, and indeed the UK.  Please don’t stay at home…please make the effort to get to know your local park or explore one you haven’t visited before.”

And if you visit our parks, send us your photos.

We have 11 country parks: Ty Mawr Country Park, Nant Mill Visitor Centre and Park, Ponciau Banks, Moss Valley Country Park, Alyn Waters Country Park, Acton Park, Bellevue Park, Bonc yr Hafod Country Park, Stryt Las Park, Bryn Kinalt Park and Minera Lead Mines Country Park.

You can find out more about our country parks here.
