Riseley Parklet - Officially named Mandjar wer Nyin
As part of our work implementing the Riseley Placemaking Action Plan, we installed a parklet on Kearns Crescent outside of C15 Espresso on Thursday, 16 December 2021.
A parklet is a small, temporary and moveable public space located in existing carbays and is designed to be a welcoming space for all the community to sit, stay, enjoy and connect with others.
It features the colours and design of the Riseley Centre branding as well as native plantings.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a name suggestion through Melville Talks to name the Riseley Parklet.
The 57 name submissions were narrowed down to 3 final selections which the community voted on, and we can now announce that the chosen name is “Mandjar wer Nyin” which means to meet and sit In Whadjuk language. It is a combination of two Whadjuk language names submitted by community members which has been approved by elder Aunty Marie Taylor.
The voucher winners will be contacted directly.
Feedback on the parklet is still open via Melville Talks until Thursday, 16 June 2022.
