Its larger "twin" city of Albury is located on the other side of the river in New South Wales.replacenewlinereplacenewlineWodonga has a large shopping precinct, primarily split between the Wodonga Plaza Shopping Centre on Elgin Boulevard and the shops along much of the length of High Street. Near the southern end of High Street is an attractive triangular park known as Woodland Grove which features a 33 metre high water tower (built in 1923), war memorial, sculptures, paved pathways and a cafe overlooking the lawns. High Street leads to a large 6-way roundabout with gardens in its centre, and then becomes the wide boulevard known as Beechworth Road with lawns and trees planted along its central strip.replacenewlinereplacenewlineThere are a large selection of attractive parks and reserves throughout Wodonga, many situated along the numerous waterways in residential areas and incorporating a network of walking and bicycle tracks. Several of the larger parks feature a mixture of native and deciduous trees, particularly stunning in autumn when the leaves turn bright shades of orange and yellow. Sumsion Gardens, located just west of High Street at the northern end of the town centre, is surrounded a large lagoon. There is a walking track which goes right around the lake, plus picnic and BBQ facilities, shelters, a playground, and a rotunda accessed via a footbridge to a small island located within the lake.
