ANZAC Reserve has numerous memorials, one is from the Victorian Fire Fighters they came during the last bush fires in Wollombi to assist.

That's why it's a Reserve rather than a park.

Three trees were planted by Wollombi Public School after World War One but due to later road works, one of them had to be removed.

The grounds are maintained by Tidy Valleys with the help of Cessnock City Council who maintain the lawns. Laguna and Wollombi Public School pupils help Tidy Valleys with the gardens.

The ANZAC Reserve Pond was improved with a dollar for dollar grant from Cessnock City Council. The Pond needed to be dug out deeper and Tidy Valleys raised the funds for this project.

We now have a beautiful Pond with an island for wildlife with thanks to the Tidy Valleys and Council, not to mention the great storm in June 2007 that filled it over night.
