Spooky Dam Open Day

Halloween has arrived at Pen Y Garreg!

Do you dare to venture along our spooky woodland trail and inside a haunted Pen Y Garreg dam? (This is a family friendly activity!)

Make your way up through the woodland keeping an eye out for the pumpkin markers. On each marker is a letter. Use these letters to create a password which will get you past the gatekeeper and into the dam.

Walk though Pen Y Garreg dam to the central tower where you can collect a Halloween treat, then continue your journey through the dam, down through the woodlands and back to your car.
