GreenWood Forest Park in Y Felinheli has been awarded a Gold Accolade by Visit Wales, the Welsh Government’s Tourism Department.
The Gold award is given to attractions that go the extra mile to create a really enjoyable and memorable experience for their visitors.
The park, which boasts the world’s first people powered roller coaster, is one of only 19 attractions to receive this award in Wales.
To achieve gold accreditation attractions need to score at least 85% in all categories of assessment. The introduction of this award will encourage welsh visitor attractions to aim for higher standards.
The Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates had this to say about the award: “Wales has such a wealth and range of attractions and things to do, our visitors are spoilt for choice. This new scheme will both reward those attractions which go the extra mile and also give visitors more information on what makes some of our attractions extra special and will also highlight some less well known gems. I’d like to congratulate all the 2016 winners and we hope that these accolades will drive further improvements in visitor experience throughout Wales“
GreenWood Forest Park’s Managing Director Stephen Bristow said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award. It reflects on all of the hard work by our fantastic staff who deliver a great visitor experience year after year”.
