First nations’ culture recognised in playground naming poll

The history and culture of our region’s first nations’ are being recognised in the name of the new playground currently under construction in Armidale’s Curtis Park.

Council is calling on the community to choose a name that they believe has meaning to the site of the new playground in Curtis Park from a poll of selected aboriginal names in both the Anaiwan and Gumbaynggirr languages.

Armidale Regional Council Mayor Cr Simon Murray said it was important that we acknowledge Armidale’s aboriginal cultural heritage.

“Playgrounds are a fun, socially inclusive space for children and families in the Armidale region to enjoy and spend time with each other,” said Cr Murray.

“It seems particularly appropriate that we honour Armidale’s significant aboriginal cultural heritage with the naming of the wonderful new playground currently under construction in Armidale’s Curtis Park.”

Council has consulted with the Aboriginal Lands Council on aboriginal language names included in Council’s Local Roads and Place Naming Policy appropriate to the playground space and Council’s Aboriginal Community Development Officer has also provided input.

Please choose one name from the poll below in either Anaiwan or Gumbaynggirr languages that you believe best reflects the area in which the new playground is located.
