As part of this consultation Council is seeking suggestions from the community to name the new Park at 260 Sydney Road Brunswick.
We’ll also be consulting with the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Elders to explore possible names that acknowledge the important social and historical events which have fashioned Merri-bek’s character and in particular this location.
A shortlist will be chosen from both groups of names which will then be voted on by the community.
