City of Wagga Botanical Gardens
Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens are located in the Wagga Wagga suburb of Turvey Park on a 20 hectare site on the south western slopes of Willans Hill Reserve. Access to the 22 acre gardens is via Macleay Street near the corner of Lord Baden Powell Drive.
Construction of the Botanic Gardens started in in 1961, with the first trees planted in 1962. The gardens were officially opened in 1968 by the Director of Botanic Gardens, Adelaide, Mr T. R. N. Lothian. Today, the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens feature nine distinct garden areas, a Chinese pavilion, three playgrounds, a free zoo and aviary, a tree chapel and a model railway that weaves throughout the gardens.
Suitable for all ages, the Adventure Playground will provide hours of fun. Children can enjoy the CableRide, lose each other in the Labyrinth and climb until their hearts content on the massive WildNet structure. Located next to the Adventure Playground is a huge covered picnic area with seating and BBQ's, making it the perfect spot to spend an afternoon.
