The upgraded park along the Yarra River in Warrandyte, locally known as Lions Park, will finally be given an official Woi-wurrung name to reflect the language, culture and heritage of the local Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people.
The name wonguim wilam was officially endorsed at Council Meeting last month and will be submitted to the Geographic Names Victoria for endorsement.
Driven by our commitment to reconciliation, we have consulted with key stakeholders including the Lions Club of Warrandyte, Masterplan Community Reference Group and the Wurundjer iWoi-Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation.
We thank the Lions Club of Warrandyte for not only maintain the park and tennis courts over the 40-plus years, but for their willingness to lead our community in supporting this name change.
