Although relatively small, Killay Marsh is still important. A part of the Clyne Valley Country Park, it consists of 21 acres of wet woodland, swamp and marshy grassland - a remnant of the more extensive wet woodlands that once characterized the Clyne Valley. The plants at the reserve are of particular importance to a range of butterflies and there is a large population of common frog. Serotine, Natteres, Noctule and Brown Long-eared bats can be seen in the evenings. Nearly 60 species of bird including Water rail, Marsh tit, Reed warbler and Willow warbler all breed on the reserve. Whorled caraway, bogbean, marsh cinquefoil and greater tussock grow on the site and marsh marigold and yellow iris are abundant. A really interesting place to visit within easy and accessible reach of the City. Remember to have a look as you go along the Clyne cycle path.

It has a turbulent recent history. In the 70's and 80’s, a substantial part of wet woodland at Clyne Valley was lost to create a refuse site. In 1992 a public campaign stopped its use for refuse and the area is now regenerated for nature conservation

It is open all year and Clyne Valley Country Park has a range of facilities. Schools are welcome to use the reserve as a field study site. You can also cycle along Swansea Bike Path - built on the old railway track with disabled access into the marsh as well.
