Crymlyn Bog National Nature Reserve
_ A hidden gem of international importance near the centre of the City.
Crymlyn Bog National Nature Reserve is the most extensive lowland fen in Wales and a wetland of international importance featuring a range of interesting species of birds, insects and plants. The site is located next to Swansea’s main landfill site and has a fascinating history of human influences such as mining, farming and conservation.
The reserve is managed by the Countryside Council for Wales with on-site educational activities organised by the Environment Centre. There is a short circular nature trail with a stretch of boardwalk, and a visitor centre with toilets and site interpretation displays. The centre is generally only open for special events or by arrangement.
There is a car park but the narrow approach road is unsuitable for large buses or coaches. There is wheelchair access to the visitor centre and along most of the nature trail. Sections of the trail may get muddy at times.
