A hidden gem in The Barossa Valley
Angaston is a small town in the Barossa Valley approximately 77 Kms northeast of Adelaide.
Located right on the main road of this quaint town is a beautiful Memorial Reserve. A War Memorial stands conspicuously in the park. The monument is a bronze figure of the Archangel Michael (symbolising Right over Might) holding a wreath in his left hand and a crusader sword in his right hand. The monument is set within a circular rose garden.
Another beautiful monument in the park is a bronze statue of a horse and a farmer called "Day Off, Peter". The sculpture celebrates the Clydesdale horse which plays an important role in the farming community. These horses were used in clearing lands and sowing crops. The monument commemorates the centenary of the Angaston Agricultural Bureau.
The park is spacious with lush green lawns and shady areas. There is a big undercover BBQ area. For the children, there are two separate playgrounds with clean play equipment.
Other facilities in the park include a big building with toilets and a big restroom with tables and chairs.
