The bog garden at Queen's Park.


Prehistoric bog gardens showcase some of the plants and animals that were around when dinosaurs roamed the earth. They were created to celebrate Dippy the dinosaur's visit in 2020.

With tranquil gardens and a picturesque lake for visitors to enjoy, Queen’s Park is not only a Green Flag Park, it's also a great day out for all the family.

What are bog gardens?

Bog gardens exist naturally in low lying areas or around ponds, streams or lakes.

The permanently waterlogged soil helps to protect the environment by providing a valuable habitat for a range of animals.

Do I need to book?
