Information

When the Penmaenmawr bypass section of the A55 North Wales Expressway was built, the town’s 19th century Promenade was demolished to make way. Aberconwy Borough Council replaced it with a new Promenade, designed by consulting engineers Travers Morgan and built by contractor John Laing. The new Promenade was built on reclaimed land and opened in 1989. Its facilities include a café, chalets and a paddling pool. Its pedestrian subway links to the previously existing railway underpass leading to Station Road.
