Happy Valley is a CADW listed public park situated on the side of the Great Orme, Llandudno.
The lower part of the park is mostly informal gardens with a large grass area great for picnics or playing with the dog and offering spectacular sea views overlooking Llandudno pier. in the centre of this grass area, there is a stone circle that was erected to mark the national Eisteddfod of 1962. There is also a drinking fountain sheltering a bust of queen victoria, a bandstand, carpark, public toilets, a cafe, a putting green and a camera obscura in in this area.
Above the large, grassy area, Happy Valley takes you on a beautiful, paved walk through the botanical gardens, winding through trees, past exotic plants and ponds and offering beautiful views the whole way! It is home to various wildlife and plant species, be mindful with dogs as sheep & goats roam the headland freely.
Higher up Happy Valley you will find the ski slope/ snowsports centre, where you ski, snowboard, go snowtubing, ride the toboggan or play crazy golf! Whilst dogs obviously can’t take part in the activities, they are more than welcome to wait in the alpine lodge with you offering beautiful views over the dry ski slope and looking out over the sea to the Little Orme.
You can catch a cable car from Happy Valley straight up to the Great Orme summit (dogs are welcome on the cable cars too).
You will find many Alice in wonderland statues scattered around Happy Valley (and the rest of Llandudno), pick up a town trail map from Llandudno visitor centre or download the interactive app so you can follow the white rabbit and find all of the sculptures.
