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:

Wil­low Park: This park of­fers a skate bowl for young chil­dren and teens, and House Creek runs through the park.

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

Les Stone Park - This park of­fers a bar­be­cue and toi­let fa­cil­i­ties and has a play­ground fea­tur­ing a ship and ac­cess to House Creek.

Fur­ther up the park near Brock­ley St, there is a wet­land with a jetty for fish­ing.

Belvoir Park (Sum­sion Gar­dens) - This park is very pic­turesque and of­fers a large lake with ducks, swans and geese, as well as a large and mod­ern play­ground, and out­door fit­ness equip­ment.

You can also ac­cess Belvoir Park off High St (free­way end) by turn­ing into Reuss Rd.

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.
