The Penola Town Square is an ongoing project being progressed by Wattle Range Council and members of the Penola community.
The Penola Town Square is a central meeting place where residents, visitors and tourists can be both reflective and have fun. They can also participate in a variety of community events and activities in this social and cultural hub.
Through its distinctive Commemorative Walk, which highlights sacrifice, courage, mateship and loyalty, the Town Square celebrates our town’s history and ancestry by honouring those men and women who actively served with the Australian Defence Forces from the Crimean War to current times. Through its proposed public art installations, the strength and character of our pioneering women will be celebrated.
The Penola Town Square will indeed contribute to the social, cultural and economic life of our historic town.
A community based consultation group has been formed to continue to develop the square considering the needs and desires of current and future users of the space.
