Vote For New Park Name

Canberra’s newest public park is set to open at West Basin in early 2018 and you can help choose its name.

Members of the ACT Place Names Committee have nominated four people who played a role in the development of the region for the public to select from.

These include a convict-turned-land manager, John McLoughlin, landscaper Dame Sylvia Crowe, architect and amateur artist Henry Rolland OBE, or the founder of The Queanbeyan Age John Gale.

With 23,000 plants, grassed areas, barbecue facilities, public art, connected walkways and access to the new public boardwalk on the lake’s edge, the park will be a focal recreational destination in the city precinct.
