There has been great support from volunteers at Alyn Waters Country Park who have recently finished tree planting along the entrance to Alyn Waters Country Park.

That makes 1,000 trees planted in the Park in the past few weeks.

The trees have been planted as part of a new, innovative project. The Wrexham Green Infrastructure Project aims to improve local green spaces throughout Wrexham. The project encourages the local community to take an active role in caring for our environment.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said:

“This is an amazing achievement for Alyn Waters and I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work. It fits in perfectly with our recently declared climate emergency and will help reduce our carbon emissions in addition to improving even further the outstanding scenery in our country parks for future generations.”

Volunteers from the local community and local schools Waters all worked with  our tree officer and Rangers to plant the trees. We are grateful to the funding received from the Welsh Assembly Government and The Woodlands Trust. This has allowed them create this vital habitat link for local wildlife in years to come.
