I went there with my two girls and they loved that place. It is very magical and meeting the fairy was really a memorable experience. There is as well a great playground and lovely animals.

We went on a lovely day, slightly overcast but dry. There were 4 adults and my 9 month old nephew. I almost didn't go as wasn't sure it was my cup of tea but I am so glad I went. I thought this was amazing, my nephew was transfixed by the model railway and my sister and brother in law... More

Don't know where to start with this place, we absolutely loved it! Loads to see, loads to do at no extra cost and super good fun for kids of all ages (including big kids) we had such a good afternoon and could have made it last all day. Particularly liked the go carts, all the animals and just everything really

Not sure what I expected from this place but turned out to be a really enjoyable day. Its not a huge place by any means but for younger kids, there is plenty to do with the train, play areas and animals. Entrance fee for a family was reasonable enough and would return if in the area. One for the younger... More

We visited Gypsy Wood Park after doing a little research for what to do in the Caernarfon area. It’s an enchanting place with so much to see would recommend to any family to visit. This is an outdoor attraction, so best to go when the weather is dry! It’s recommended to bring your wellies to explore the wetlands too. There... More

Enjoyed a visit to Gypsy wood Parc with 4 children today aged 5 ,3. 2 and 9 months. Easy access with a pram and very safe for children to walk around. It is essential to have a dry day to visit so children can enjoy the parc. A new attraction this year is the little railway that goes around the... More

We visited with a four year old and baby. We were recommended to come by a friend and it did not disappoint. Our little boy is fanatical about trains and he was in his element. Plus there was so much to see on gorgeous short walks, animals treehouses, go karts climbing frames too much to mention. Compared to other places... More

However once inside the park we found the play and picnic areas very well kept as were the animal enclosures . The animals looked well cared... More

We visited today and our 1st impression was that there didn't seem very much to do. However our 2 children (aged 4 & 6) had a great time driving the model trains, playing on the dumper trucks and in the castle. They enjoyed looking for the witches hiding in the woods on the train ride, feeding the goats and playing... More
