GreenWood, formerly GreenWood Forest Park and The GreenWood Centre, is a family fun park at Y Felinheli in Gwynedd, Wales. The park was opened by Stephen and Andrea Bristow in 1993 and attracts around 150,000 visitors a year. It is now owned by visitor attraction specialists Continuum Attractions.
After studying at Bangor University in the 1980s and working on tree conservation projects in Africa, Stephen and Andrea Bristow decided to establish an “environment education project to tell people about trees and forests from all over the world and raise awareness of the importance of forests” in Wales. They purchased 17 acres of land, opening in 1993 with walks and guided tours. Receiving 30,000 visitors a year, the couple could not financially sustain the project, especially during the winter. After raising money to build a slide, which opened in 2001, the park gained in popularity, with over 60,000 visitors that year.
By 2016 the park had over 100 employees and attracted around 150,000 visitors a year. Stephen and Andrea Bristow retired in 2017, selling the park to leisure attractions company Continuum Attractions.
