Greenwood Forest Park

Greenwood Park has twice been named Best Family Attraction in North Wales. This is an adventure park with a difference.

The farm is also home to a fully working indoor Vintage Funfair, which offers thrills and spills for the young and great memories for the young-at-heart. From farmyard antics at the Jolly Barn, a zoo with some truly exotic animals and spacious adventure play areas, a day at Folly Farm is all-action from start to finish.
