We had a brilliant day out in Greenwood!Our children aged 9,6 and 5 had an absolute ball! The particularly enjoyed the roller coaster, the giant slide, the giant bouncer, the pony rides and the den building. A fun park with a difference, definitely worth a visit if you are travelling with kids!

We took our 3 and 1 year olds to Green Forest Park while on holiday. We had a great time. Our 3 year old is just 3ft2" so could go on pretty much everything and he made sure he did. The toddler villages dotted about have just enough to keep little ones occupied but happy to move on when everyone else is. We lasted 5 hours and the kids fell asleep as soon as they were in the car.

3'.2" means a ride on The Roller Coaster - that's fantastic! Nice to hear your toddlers enjoyed everything the Park has to offer. Thank you.

Holidaying in North Wales, this was one place we had wanted to go to from the start as it looked excellent for little kids, and it really did not disappoint.
It would probably be a little lacking for children ten and up who will be starting to expect more, but as a theme park for younger children, I really would struggle to fault it.

It is set in a beautiful area of woodland, and is wonderfully set out; not too far to walk, no-one tripping over each other, plenty of shade and seating, a very well thought out place.

We all thought the barefoot walk was particularly enjoyable, our three year old loved it, Howard the Magician really tickled my funny bone I'm not sure why, it is meant for the kids, pull along boats are great fun, and the roller coaster is a ride within a ride! The concept of the potential energy turning to kinetic energy put into a roller coaster; excellent, hats off to the designers.

I found the maze a real treat, just off to the side in a denser part of woodland, we were the only ones there, and it was just wonderful.

We got round the park in around 4 hours, and had done most of the activities, (some were more suited to older children), so for under £10 each, I would say this is excellent value for money.

It really is a wonderful place, a little theme park, aimed at younger children, set in woodland, educational if you read the signs, sympathetically laid out and designed, and fun, a great deal of fun. Well done to all concerned with this, this is the sort of theme park I would build if I could, it is fantastic. We will be back!

Visited the park today with my 2 daughters, 7 & 2 yes old, and there are plenty of activities and things to do for both! The park is very clean, staff very friendly and the prices are very reasonable!

We visited Greenwood whilst on holiday in North Wales with our three children and our friends and their two children (all five kids aged between 4-9). We have come here several times before (the first time being when our eldest was just a toddler) and the park has never disappointed. We arrived as the park opened at 10am and left as it closed at 1730. The kids (particularly the littlies) loved the Green Dragon roller coaster and all the kids really enjoyed the Great Green Run slides, the bigger children (particularly the two 9 year olds) loved racing round the track on the Moon Buggies!! In addition to the rides and play equipment which is great, the staff are friendly, the park is clean and even though we visited on a sunny day in May half term it did not feel crowded! The magic and pirate shows are also very good and had all 5 of the children (and us grown ups) laughing out loud! I think the attraction is best for those under 10 and that kids older than that may find it a bit boring (certainly not enough to entertain them for a whole day). Easy parking and well signposted, good value for money if like us you take a packed lunch and stay all day!
