  • Bonc Yr Hafod Hound Walk with Kim

    Bonc yr Hafod Country Park LL14 6HF £5.00 to join. Meet at the Park at 1pm on Sunday.

    Bonc yr Hafod covers nearly 90 acres of woodland and grassland. The park lies on the site of Hafod Colliery and has a large hill, known locally as ‘picnic mountain’.

    Along with Stryt Las Park, the park forms part of the Johnstown Special Area of Conservation. This strong protective status is due to the population of Great Crested Newts that live in and around the park. Great Crested Newts are rare across their home of Northern Europe, but the low lying areas around Wrexham are a stronghold for these amphibians.

    Hafod is a park rich in other types of wildlife too, including: dragonflies, grass snakes and birds such as buzzards, kestrels and skylarks. In the summer the park is full of wildflowers, including the common spotted orchid and birds foot trefoil, while in the autumn the woodland is full of fungi.

    Dogs must be kept on a lead in the Park. Please ensure reactive dogs wear a muzzle, £5.00 Donation to Hector's and please wear suitable footwear.
