The new park is now open - help us name it!

We’ve created a new park at 132-134 Cardinal Road, Glenroy, as a part of ‘A Park Close to Home’ project.

The ‘A Park Close to Home’ project aims to make sure every household in Moreland has access to green open space to enjoy.

This fresh new park needs a name and we want your suggestions.

We’ve had two name suggestions already, but we want more people in the community to also have a say before we decide.

Everyone is invited to make a suggestion. We want to hear from you!

After submissions close a shortlist will be chosen and presented to Council for endorsement. The community will then be asked to select their preference before Council makes the final decision.

You can submit your name suggestion below, just make sure you're registered with Conversations Moreland.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm Friday 19 August 2022.

Preference will be given to submissions that:

  • 1.

    Are traditional Woi-wurrung or other Aboriginal language names.

  • 2.

    Acknowledge the role of groups or communities within Moreland.

  • 3.

    Acknowledge the contributions of Moreland's multi-cultural communities.

  • 4.

    Acknowledge important social and historical events that happened on or near the site.

  • 5.

    Are names of women who have contributed to Moreland's development.

Names must meet principles A- M of the State Government’s Naming rules for places in Victoria – Statutory requirements for naming roads, features and localities – 2022.
Traditional Aboriginal language names are subject to the involvement and agreement of the relevant Aboriginal communities. It is not appropriate that the names of living persons be considered for place naming. More information can be found in the Naming Moreland Places Policy.
