Drink in warm weather in Wodonga
THE arrival of spring marks the perfect opportunity to get out to local parks and gardens and enjoy a picnic, barbecue or just a trip to the playground with the kids.
There are a range of picturesque parks and gardens dotted throughout Wodonga.
Some of the major parks in the city are:

There is fitness equipment located along the path and a playground.

Other significant parks:
Peace Square - Located in White Box Rise Estate on the cnr of Kelliher Ave and Victoria Cross Parade, this park has a lovely setting and is surrounded by history and progression at the same time as the land was once owned by the Army.
The sculptures in the park thank past soldiers for their efforts and dedication to Australia.
Woodland Grove - Located in the CBD, this park is a place where many locals like to eat their lunch. Located at the base of the water tower, there are also amazing steel sculptures that make it recognisable as Woodland Grove.
