Cowra Peace Precinct Trails
A network of concrete shared paths meander through the Cowra Peace Precinct, allowing tourists and families easy riding access to the main attractions and points of interest. Regardless of your age or level of fitness, the Cowra Peace Precinct trails are a must if you want to show visiting friends and relatives all that the town has to offer. There are many places to stop and picnic or just enjoy the tranquillity of Cowra’s largest urban parkland.
The Japanese Garden, the Japanese War Cemetery, the Sakura Walk at cherry blossom time, Saburo Nagakura Park, the remnants of the Cowra P.O.W. Camp and the World Peace Bell are all reminders of Cowra's importance during the war and after the war as a benchmark of healing and reconciliation.
It's a great place to reflect on your own ideas of peace, friendships, Aboriginal cultural heritage and the beauty of the Lachlan Valley.
The Cowra Peace Precinct trails also link to the Farm Road trail north of Cowra, which provides for longer family rides on quiet rural roads. The Cowra Skate Park is located to the west of the Cowra Japanese Garden on Binni Creek Road. The skate park includes an impressive 1.4m high ski jump, two fun boxes with ledges, rails and hubbas, a 30 degree flat bank with kicker, 0.8m high half pyramid and a 2.4m radius quarter pipe.
