We often go for long walks here with the children and we love it. The wooded area and the sounds of the rivers very relaxing. Very peaceful walk.

Very pretty walk, suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users, with a stream running through the woods, and lots of benches to stop to admire the view. Very tranquil yet no distance at all from the town.

Thought this would be a lovely walk in the autumn sunshine. Sadly the walk was shorter than the time it took to get there. Very disappointed.

This is a great Victorian walk, not for its Victorian charm but for its place in old colwyn history. Not a tourist spot but a gem for dog walkers and strollers in the area, this is the reason why you live in old colwyn.

Very pleasant spot for a brief wander or to sit and relax on the bench. The birds were singing enthusiastically which added to the enjoyment.

I love visiting here. Apparently work is going to begin in the area though that will affect it. I hope not as it's a beautiful nature spot.

Away from the hussle & bustle a lovely walk though the woods along side the river refreshes the mind. Great to take the dog & grandkids
