The new Ogwen Visitor Centre was officially opened in July 2013. Construction started in September 2012 and the new building features a multimedia interpretation area, food kiosk and toilets in addition to the Snowdonia National Park warden’s office. Designed by Anglesey-based DEWIS Architecture and constructed using local materials from quarries in Bethesda and Blaenau Ffestiniog, the new centre replaces the previous 1970s-built facilities. The project was managed by a partnership formed by the Snowdonia National Park Authority, the Countryside Commission for Wales, and the National Trust, and was funded with EU support through the Communities and Nature initiative.
