Vote now to name our new park

Poll closes today! Name Docklands’ newest park

Get your class to vote for one of three proposed names for a new park in north-west Docklands.

What's the connection to Melbourne Day?

One of the proposals is Lancey Park — after Captain John Lancey, one of the first settlers to arrive aboard the Enterprize and start European settlement of Melbourne on 30 August 1835.

Captain Lancey was the leader of the expedition, representing John Pascoe Fawkner, the owner of Enterprize.

The other proposed names are Ron Barassi Snr Park and Dudley Flats Park.
