Gathering Grounds Wood and Llwyni pond LNR overlooks Connah's Quay and the Dee Estuary. This 5 hectare reserve is nearly completely surrounded by housing development, but the pond is still a haven for great crested newts while the oak and ash trees provide cover for bluebells, wood anenomes and ramsons and the cuckoo flower and yellow rattle can be seen in the open grasslands . The local community use the network of public footpaths to and across the reserve for quiet enjoyment and recreation.
