7 January 2021 UPDATE – CLOSURE OF SNOWONIA NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY’S CAR PARKS

As a result of increasing numbers disregarding the Welsh Government’s guidelines to avoid any unnecessary travel the Snowdonia National Park Authority has made the decision to close all of its car parks while Wales remain under Level 4 restrictions.

In Wales there is no limit on how often people can go out to exercise, but any exercise must begin and end at home.

Read the full statement.

Situated on the west coast of Britain covering 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park is a living working area, home to over 26,000 people. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in England and Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Betws y Coed and Beddgelert. Snowdonia is an area steeped in culture and local history, where more than half its population speak Welsh.

The National Park Authority’s aims are to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area, promote opportunities to understand and enjoy its special qualities; and to foster the economic and social well-being of its communities.
