Wales with Kids: Greenwood Family Park Review, North Wales

This post may contain affiliate links.

We had a brilliant week in North Wales with the kids, and one of the places we decided to visit was Greenwood Family park – which was about a 45 minute drive from Hafan y Mor Haven Holiday Park where we stayed. (Be sure to read my review on the holiday park too! 😊)

So here’s that everything you need to know about Greenwood Family Park, including: what rides are there, facilities, entrance prices and what we thought. I’ll give you a little heads up – we loved it!

September 2021 (Updated March 2023)

What rides are at Greenwood Family Park?

Greenwood Family Park has so much on offer to keep the kids busy all day – Finn and Lola absolutely loved it and, to be honest, I did too! (Always a big kid on the rides! 😆) There were loads of things for the kids to do, here are some of our favourite attractions…

Solar Splash Dingy Slides

My two loved the Solar Splash slides so much – we raced to the bottom many times and they thought it was brilliant!

The Enchanted River Boat Ride

The kids really enjoyed the enchanted river boat ride – you have to get yourself around it, so we had a few laughs too – and thank goodness for the ropes to help us pull the boat along! 😂

Woodland Rovers Driving Experience

Finn was a bit big for the woodland rovers driving experience, but he squeezed in anyway and they both had a few goes – kids just love driving attractions don’t they?!

The Great Green Run Slides

The kids enjoyed racing together on the great green run slides.

Moon Karts Pedal Go-Karting

The pedal go-karts were probably the highlight of our day. Finn and Lola are obsessed with go-karts so they spent hours on them, and the slope of the track made it hilarious for us to sit and watch. There were lots of out of control kids while we were there, and we cried with laughter watching our two trying to steer around the track whilst heading down hill! 😂

Lots of playgrounds and adventure areas…

There are loads of nature themed playgrounds and play areas at Greenwood with some cool slides in the mix too. Pack a flask of coffee, and pop your feet up while the kids play!

These were the bits we enjoyed the most (and went on again and again!) but there’s loads more to do here. e.g. bouncy pillows, a maze, soft play. Plus there’s usually a rollercoaster too, which would have been a winner for Finn and Lola, but it was closed for maintenance when we visited.

 

What age is the family park suitable for?

I think if you’ve got kids between the age of about 3 and 12 then this sort of family adventure park is spot on. There were bits for older and younger kids, and plenty to keep everyone entertained – adults included! My husband and I also joined in with the rides and played with the kids, and we all had a brilliant day.

 

What facilities are there at Greenwood Family Park?

There are restaurants and food huts around the site, as well as toilets. Inside the main restaurant there’s also a soft play, so if you need to huddle in the warm in bad weather you can still keep the kids busy until it clears.

There’s tons of parking, which is free. All rides are open in wet weather, so make sure you have raincoats etc to make the most of it. Dogs are welcome if well behaved and on a short lead.

 

How much does it cost – is it good value for money?

We paid £61 for a family ticket, and thought it was brilliant value. We were there until closing and the kids would have happily stayed longer if they could have! There are a lot of rides and play areas, and some they’ll want to do over and over, so it’s super easy to spend a whole day exploring. Compared to other days out, Greenwood Family Park was one of our favourites, and it was cheaper than some of the other family attractions that we’ve visited in the past too.

Current prices (accurate March 2023):

Greenwood Family Park was only open at the weekends when we visited, as it was out of peak season, so check what’s on offer for the time of year that you’re hoping to visit.

We assumed that visiting on a Saturday would mean it would be packed out, but it wasn’t busy at all and the kids got straight onto the things they wanted. It’s so spread out, and there’s a lot on offer, so nowhere felt crowded.

Unusually for us we hadn’t packed lunch to take with us as we’d run out of steam near the end of our holiday, so we ordered food here and it was very overpriced, low quality food that took so long to arrive. We adored our day out at Greenwood but definitely pack a picnic for your visit as, unlike the entry price, the food isn’t good value for money.

 

Where’s the best place to stay?

We would definitely visit again and, if you’re in North Wales, I would definitely recommend a day at Greenwood Family Park! Haven’s Hafan y Mor Holiday Park was a fantastic base for both this day out and climbing Mount Snowdon.
