Situated in West Belfast beside the M1 motorway, this Local Nature Reserve is an urban oasis composed of a mosaic of reedbeds, meadows, ponds, woodland, streams and hedgerows. There are over 3km of ‘access for all’ paths with interpretive signage. It is a wonderful resource for local communities to get outdoors and to learn about local wildlife.
During the summer months, look out for African visitors of the feathered variety, including sedge, willow and grasshopper-warblers, sand martins and swallows. During the autumn, a variety of waders are attracted to the ponds when water levels are low. Winter is the best time to see the variety of ducks, geese and swans that overwinter here.
Car parking is available beside the reserve.
Open at all times.
Bog Meadows is signposted off the A501 Falls Road in Belfast, between St. Louise's School and Milltown in Belfast.
