Description

Memorial park in Woodstock, with a memorial avenue of trees. The park is located in central NSW, 23 km northeast of Cowra. It was dedicated on 5 December 1923 in honour of 66 Woodstock soldiers who served in the First World War.

The avenue has the following tree species:

  • Cupessus arizonica – Arizona Cypress
  • Grevillia robusta – Silky Oak
  • Quercus ilex – Holly Oak, Holm Oak
  • Non-locally indigenous Eucalyptus spp. make up the majority of the remaining trees, they are yet to be botanically identified.

The park is listed as Crown Reserve 55078, with an area of 3.36 hectares (8.31 acres), at an altitude of 500 m. The reserve also contains a Box Gum Grassy Woodland listed for protection in the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 as an Endangered Ecological Community and the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 as a Critically Endangered Ecological Community.

Both the memorial structures and the Box Gum Grassy Woodland are in poor condition. It is hoped circumstance will eventually allow all features of this memorial park to be restored to become a unique compliment to each other and an inspiring attraction.
