Play is essential for all ages

The ability to play and take part in outdoor recreation is an important contributor to our physical and mental health, as well as our sense of well-being.

The Wagga Wagga Local Government Area has over 95 playgrounds, parks and open spaces. These are your spaces, where you can enjoy our beautiful natural surroundings with the people (and pets) you care about.

What’s missing in some cases – is a name

We have 42 parks, playgrounds and open spaces without official names. We'd like to change that. We'll be working our way through the parks, as our budget allows, seeking your suggestions for park names.

How to suggest a name

Everyone is welcome to make a suggestion – individuals, families, groups, schools and community organisations.

Our Parks Naming Policy (attached) outlines the general provisions regarding how we select park names for adoption. Reading the policy will give you the best chance of suggesting an eligible name.

After you’ve read the policy you can choose a name, gather supporting information about why the name is important to you – and submit!

The first two parks we’re asking for name suggestions are:

1. Cootamundra Boulevard Park in Gobbagombalin

Cootamundra Boulevard Park – Gobbagombalin

2. Sturrock Drive Park in Boorooma

Sturrock Drive Park – Boorooma
