Memorial park in Woodstock with monument and avenue.

 

Memorial Avenue Tree Species:

Non-locally indigenous Eucalyptus spp. make up the majority of the remaining trees, they are yet to be botanically identified.

 

Crown Reserve 55078
Area: 3.36 hectares (8.31 acres)
Altitude: 500 m

The Crown Reserve in which the Woodstock Soldiers Memorial Park is located also contains a Box Gum Grassy Woodland listed for protection in the:
- NSW TSC Act 1995 as an Endangered Ecological Community.
- Commonwealth EPBC Act 1999 as a Critically Endangered Ecological Community

 

Both the Memorial structures and Box Gum Grassy Woodland are in obvious poor condition. It is hoped that 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.
