The woods and reservoir around the Afon Galedffrwd, upstream of its confluence with the Afon Ogwen, and east of Mynydd Llandygai, have long been a source of enjoyment for many people from the area. In 2003, residents in Mynydd Llandygai and vicinity formed a charitable company called Coetir Mynydd, which took ownership of the Parc yr Ynys woodland and Llyn Coed y Parc from the Penrhyn Estate in April 2004.

In 2005-6, work was concentrated, by means of a grant from the Forestry Commission through the CydCoed project, on the gradual rebuilding of  the stonewall boundaries to the woodland.

On September 3rd, 2006, we were very pleased to receive a Rural Wales Award from CPRW, the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales, for our management of these woodlands.  More detail and photographs can be found in the Annual Report for 2006 (Documents).
