Garrong Park, Tinning Street, Brunswick
We’re creating a number of new parks in suburbs across Moreland that need them the most as Council implements the Park Close to Home initiative. One of the first parks to be delivered is going to be located at 55-61 Tinning Street, Brunswick (PDF 6Mb).
It's official - Garrong Park, Tinning Street, Brunswick
Garrong means ‘Wattle’ in Woi Wurrung language. This name was suggested by an Elder at the Wurundjeri Tribe Council, the Elder chose a name that children can say. Wattle theming will be highlighted through use of colour, planting and artwork in the park.
Three name options for the new park at Tinning Street were raised by the community during consultations in September 2019. The three suggested names relate to the history, heritage and character of Brunswick. The community voted on a preferred name for the new park, and Garrong Park 78 per cent of votes as the preferred name. At the February 2020 meeting, Council endorsed Garrong Park as the name for the new park on Tinning Street Brunswick.
Park development update - February 2020
Construction has been delayed due to complexities during demolition. It is now expected that demolition will be completed early May, then construction can commence. Construction of the new park is expected to take 16 weeks, therefore completion is planned for September 2020.
Further updates will be provided as the project progresses.
