Current Welsh Legislation
As official ambassadors for the Snowdonia National Park, we all want you to think about these beautiful places and how you interact with them and others during your visit, so please:
Please help us create a safer National Park for our communities and other visitors by following these guidelines:
- Be safe – Observe social distancing at all times. Maintain a safe distance between you/your group and others. Be mindful of any pinch points and remember to sanitise your hands after contact with hard surfaces.
- Tread lightly – Be willing to change your destination. Have a few options prepared in case you arrive somewhere that is increasingly getting busy.
- Be kind – Park in designated parking spaces. Check how busy our car parks are by following our live updates page before you set off.
- Do not park on roadsides or across entrances, it is dangerous and can cause problems for our farmers, communities and emergency services.
