Snowdonia became a national park in 1951 in order to safeguard its special qualities including its breathtaking scenery, deep valleys, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, rugged mountains and fine beaches. It is home to over 25,000 people many of whom work in the National Park where the Welsh language continues to be the predominant language. Each year around six million people visit Snowdonia to enjoy these special qualities and contribute greatly to the local economy.
