A visit to GreenWood Forest Park will give you and your family a day out like no other. Set in 17 acres of woodland there's eco-fun for all ages and an adventure at the end of every leafy trail! Take a ride on our eco-friendly Green Dragon Rollercoaster and zoom down our 70m sledge run – the longest in Wales. Embark on a Jungle Boat Adventure before bouncing along to the big, bouncy Giant Jumper. Explore the timber turrets of TreeTop Towers, conquer the Crocodile Maze, and take a ride on Moon Karts. For something a bit more therapeutic, take off your shoes and walk barefoot over leaves, pebbles, bark and sand at Wales’s first BareFoot Trail.
