Caernarfon has a small harbour, and a Blue Flag beach at Victoria Harbour. The location of the town creates a lovely view across the Afon Menai towards the south of Anglesey.
Focal point Y Maes or 'Castle Square' in English was refurbished in 2009, causing much controversy when a historical feature of the town was taken down; namely a very old oak tree, situated outside the HSBC bank. Re-opened in July 2009 by the local politician and Heritage Minister of Wales, Alun Ffred Jones AM, the use of beautiful local slate is very prominent in the new Maes.
There is a small hospital in the town, 'Ysbyty Eryri'. It does hold an Accident and Emergency unit. The nearest regional large hospital is Ysbyty Gwynedd, in Bangor.
Gwynedd County Council's head offices are situated in the town. The local court serves the town and the rest of North West Wales, and in 2009 moved to a multi-million pound court complex on Llanberis Road. Caernarfon has been chosen as the location of a new prison. HMP Caernarfon will hold up to 800 adult males when constructed, and will take prisoners from all over the North Wales area.
The town is twinned with Landerneau in Britanny.
