The Geographical Names Board (GNB) is seeking community feedback on a proposal by Blacktown City Council to name a reserve in the suburb of Marsden Park as Dyanmila Park.
The reserve is located on the corner of Elara Boulevard and Northbourne Drive, Marsden Park, Blacktown Local Government Area.
Dyanmila Park was the most popular option from council’s community consultation on naming the new park. It is a local Dharug word meaning ‘play’.
The GNB is seeking feedback to gauge community sentiment for the proposed name. Suggestions for alternative names are not being sought at this time.
Details of the proposal can be viewed, and submissions lodged on the GNB website.
Written submissions on the proposed changes can also be mailed to: Secretary, Geographical Names Board, 346 Panorama Ave, Bathurst, NSW 2795.
The closing date for submissions is 12 January 2024.
Quotes to be attributed to Geographical Names Board Chair Narelle Underwood:
“It is important that place names reflect the character and history of the local area and community.”
“We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed name.”
