Brynkinalt Park, Chirk

A natural landscaped Brynkinalt Park is a large area of community woodland and informal open space on the outskirts of Chirk, reclaimed from the old spoil heaps of the former Brynkinalt colliery. The park has magnificent views over Chirk towards the Berwyn hills and Shropshire. It's features include wooded slopes, extensive areas of newly planted native woodland selected to be sympathetic with local indigenous varieties, a network of pathways leading through the undulating landscape and an agility trail for daily exercise.

The park also contains mining artefacts, a coal wagon and cutting disc to celebrate the park's industrial heritage. Before the coal mining, the land was part of Brynkinalt Home Farm, and there is a covered reservoir at the highest point which still supplies the water to Brynkinalt Hall.

An area has been reserved for wildlife and wildflowers to flourish and for the natural regeneration of trees on the reclaimed soils.

There is a car parking area off Middleton Terrace at the lower entrance to the park, and a smaller area at the top of Chirk Green Road .
