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 Merri-bek has access to green open space to enjoy.

Voting on the new park name is now open!

After an extended community submissions process, Council have created a shortlist of suggested names for the community to vote on. They are displayed below in a randomised order.

  • Stewart Murray Park

    After an Indigenous rights activist, WW2 soldier & Glenroy resident.

  • Bagung Djerring Park

    Means 'gather together' in Woi-Wurrung language.

  • Walert Park

    Meaning 'possum' in Woi-Wurrung language.

  • Yubup Park

    Meaning 'parrakeet' in Woi-Wurrung language.

  • ​Citadel Park

    Named after a place of worship/meeting for the Salvation Army

  • ​Topluluk Park

    Meaning 'community' in Turkish language.

All votes will be counted, the name with the majority of votes will become the official name of the park (subject to Council approval).

Voting closes 5pm Friday 28 October 2022.

Naming processes and procedures are undertaken in accordance with the statutory Naming Rules for Places in Victoria.
