Just a brief walk, which is good for families. The route heads to Ewloe Castle, an impressive ruined castle in Wales.

Take the bus to Connah's Quay, for the start of the walk. Look for a big sign for Wepre Park, Ewloe Castle. It's quite a long walk through a housing estate (I thought I was going wrong somewhere, but perservered) - you get there in the end.

Two streams, woodland walks, picnic areas. It's a great place for inquisitive kids, even if it is in ruins; who will be king (or queen) of the castle ?

There are plenty of ways out of the park into town - one for your own judgement!
