Welcome to the website of The Friends of Acton Park.
The Friends of Acton Park is a non-profit making community group set up by Wrexham County Borough Council and local residents in 2008 with the aim to promote, protect, maintain and improve our wonderful park so that it can be enjoyed by everyone for generations to come. During this time the group’s numbers have increased but we are always looking to welcome new volunteers – just keep an eye on the updates for information about forthcoming events.
Acton Park has an area of about 55 acres and includes, we believe, the most magnificent trees in the area, a great diversity of wildlife, play areas for children, a beautiful lake, the Gorsedd Stones from the 1977 National Eisteddfod, a Japanese Garden and safe walking with plenty of benches!
The history of the park is fascinating and tells the story from, perhaps its most famous resident, “The Hanging Judge” Jeffreys, up to 1947, when the land was gifted to Wrexham Council by the then owner Alderman William Aston.
