Bulwell Bogs is a small park near to
Bulwell Market Place through which the River Leen flows. For centuries it
has been a place for inhabitants to relax and for children to play, fish
and paddle. On two occasions there have been attempts to prevent the
public from enjoying this space. The first was in 1872 when the Lord
of the Manor wanted to enclose it for his private use, and the second,
very recently in 2002 when the City Council wanted to build a large
transport hub for a tram / train / road interchange. Both attempts were
thwarted by public opposition and demonstration.
The small park also incorporates a children's amusement / play area, a children's splash pool area, picnic tables and a pair of climbing rocks. Conveniently, it now backs directly onto the Bulwell NET tram stop from which there is direct access.
