Victory Memorial Gardens / Wollundry Lagoon
Across the street from the library is a park; the Victory Memorial Gardens is along the banks of the Wollundry Lagoon. From the library you will be greeted by a fountain amid the rosebeds. Trees provide shade to the park benches scattered around. There have been occasions when I would cross the street from the library during lunch hour, settle on a parkbench and munch on my sandwich while reading a book. So peaceful and relaxing. Throughout the gardens also are various war memorials (including The Cenotaph) and dedications to the First and Second World Wars, and the Vietnam War.
Walk further along the banks of the Wollundry Lagoon (away from the library) and you will see residences along the banks of the lagoon. The lagoon is also a wildlife reserve and the ducks are the masters in that area!
