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
