About Llyn Llech Owain Country Park
Llyn Llech Owain Country Park is an area of 73 Hectares (180 acres), managed for your enjoment by Carmarthenshire County Council.
At the heart of the Country Park is the lake, which is surrounded by a peat bog. This rare habitat is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Elsewhere are areas of heathland and broadleaved woodland, whilst areas of coniferous woodland are being cleared progressively and converted to heathland and broadleaved woodland.
A network of footpaths provides for enjoyable walking. Many paths are well surfaced and accessible to wheelchair users.
A specially constructed path allows safe access over the peat bog and around the lake. There is also a mountain bike trail and a bridleway.
The Visitor Centre stands beside the lake, enjoying splendid views of Llyn Llech Owain and the surrounding area. It houses an exhibition and information on the management of the Country Park.
Our team of Countryside Rangers is based here and will be happy to answer your questions or to hear about wildlife you may have seen.
Llyn Llech Owain has a cafeteria, picnic sites, and toilet facilities, all with provision for the disabled. We hope you enjoy a visit here soon.
