Moss Valley Country Park

All of our car parks in the country parks are now open. All our country parks and playgrounds are currently open. Toilets and Visitor Centres remain closed, with the exception of the toilets at Tŷ Mawr which are now open.

Moss Valley is beautiful parkland situated between Gwersyllt and Brynteg, three miles north of Wrexham. The V-shaped valley has wooded sides, two small lakes and areas of open grassland.

The Valley provides a rich habitat for wildlife and is particularly noted for its birds. Moss Valley has an industrial past, and was once a major coal mining area. In 1973 the spoil heaps were reclaimed, but amongst the tranquil woodland and meadows, evidence of the old railways can still be found hidden in the park.

The park has a number of footpaths running alongside the lakes and through woodland of oak and beech. The paths often follow the old tramways and railway lines that were once used to extract the coal and sandstone from the valley. Although the coal mines have long since gone, the small sandstone quarries still exist offering excellent wildlife habitats hidden away amongst the trees.

The Moss Valley Fishing Club uses the lake by the main car park. Please contact Deggy’s Fishing Tackle, 2 Ruabon Road, Wrexham to obtain membership details and to purchase day tickets.

Riders / cyclists can use the path along the old railway line. There are two car parks near the lakes, but no toilet facilities.

N.B. the flying of drones is not permitted in Wrexham Parks.
