On the northern boundary of the town, the Namoi River flows westward on its way to link into the major river systems of the Barwon, Darling and Murray. The historical significance of the 'Woolshed' relates to the early settler John Johnson who established a wool shed on the banks of the river. The area was known as the 'Woolshed' before being named Gunnedah in 1860.

A shared bike/walking path connects the the Woolshed Reserve with the Donnelly Fields Sporting facilities, and also provides a dog off-leash park.

The Woolshed Reserve has a picnic shelter, wood barbecue, picnic tables and some playground equipment and lends itself to a lazy afternoon picnic. Bring a ball for the kids to play with while you soak up the atmosphere.

Actively welcomes people with access needs.
